Create your own tiered trays that take only minutes to assemble!
If you sell tiered tray lasered kits, then this could be another product for you to offer your customers.
First start with 2 pine rounds and a thick wood dowel. The rounds I have are from Menards. The top piece is 12″ the bottom is 15″. The dowel is 2 inches wide, 48 inches long from Home depot and cost around $13.
Cut the dowel at 7 inches long. Yes you can make get multiple cuts out of this one piece.
I thought 7 inches was a good height but you can make your shorter or taller.
Use a piece of sandpaper to sand off any rough spots.
Mark the center point of each round.
Using a 2 1/2″ trim head screw, put it in about half way through on your center marks on your 15″ bottom piece.
Take your dowel and start hand tightening it onto the screw. Make sure you are in the middle of the dowel.
Hand tighten it all the way until it’s flush like pictured above.
Then use your drill to put the rest of the screw in, while holding the dowel with your other hand.
So now we have our bottom together.
Do the same process for the top round, starting by putting the screw in the center mark. Then hand tighten onto the dowel, and finish the screw with the drill.
Next I take two more screws and put an extra in the top and bottom so the tray can’t twist around.
All finished now, we can stain or paint your color of choice!
Pin for later!
