2011-08-14: Cupcake Stand Done!

Last fall, Taylor asked me do build her a cupcake stand for her wedding. Similar to one she saw online. She knows that I like a good project, and I figured it would be a breeze. I quickly found a couple of stumps where someone had just cut down a tree. This was maybe around October,  and I never thought about how to slice up the stump. It was way too wide for my chainsaw, so I tried to find an old sawmill. I mean this is NH, and I didn't think it would be so difficult! Anyway, it got to be, June I think, and I hadn't had my tree sliced up. So I put on a brand new chain, and went to work. And it was a piece-o-cake! I was worried for nothing. I got 4 slices from different stump, and then I cut some birch into 6 1/2 inch lengths on my chop saw. And sliced 3 inch thick disks for legs.I connected it all with double threaded bolts. And voila! Ready for the wedding! With 13  days to spare!

So, now I think I'm ready for the wedding...Not sure about anyone else! Can't wait!

Happy Sunday
