Make an easy and inexpensive cupcake display in just a couple of hours!

 

How I Built this Cupcake Stand

I recommend prefinishing all of the boards.

After letting them dry time to assemble.

Using a nailer and glue repeat this process for all 4 “U” shaped pieces.

Once all the pieces are nailed, it’s time to glue and stack them.

I recommend taking the extra step of further securing the stacked boards with a scrap 1×2, it made it much stronger and secure.

Now add the treads with more glue along the side and back. If you need to secure it more, nail to side edges.
