I'm sure you guys are getting tired of seeing these, but all the lovely vintage plate cake stands here on Craftster inspired me to make one for myself! I found the plates at a wonderful local thrift store, they were a steal. The betweens are an egg cup and a candle stick, both really pretty and the perfect size for this sort of thing!


And another shot which shows the proportions a little better. The top plate is 5" and the bottom one is about 8".


I'm really happy with the result and I've gotten lots of compliments on it. Now I just need an excuse to throw a tea party! Smiley

Thanks for looking! Comments welcome!  Wink

Great idea, what did you use to glue them together?
I have some antique plates that would work great, just have to find spacers for them!
Thanks for the idea!

Great idea, what did you use to glue them together?

I used a generic stone/glass glue I bought at a Swedish craft store, but I have seen many tutorials that suggest using E6000 or another epoxy. It holds up excellent so far, no problems at all. I wouldn't put it in the dish washer of course, but then vintage crockery like this is not dishwasher safe anyway.

The process is really simple actually - just find a couple of plates, a candlestick or something similar, and glue them together! I started with gluing the egg cup to the smallest plate and the candle stick to the middle plate, and once that was dry I assembled the whole thing. If my explanation doesn't make sense, here are a couple of tutes:
