- 3/8″ dowel pins, at 1-1/2″ long
- DAP® Weldwood Instant Adhesive (<– affiliate link!)
- 3/8″ wood balls
- Wood Finial with a 3/8″ post
- 6″ wood base
- 1″ felt pads
- Sandpaper (100, 150, 220 grits)
- Finishing supplies (primer & paint, or stain, sealer)
- Miter saw or handsaw
- Jigsaw or Bandsaw
- Drill with a 3/8″ drill bit
- 1 – 2′ x 2′ sheet of 1/2″ plywood
- 1 – 1″ round dowel rod at 3′
- 3 – 1″ round dowels at 7″
- 1 – 1″ round dowel at 2″
- 1 – 1/2″ plywood circle at 12″ in diameter
- 1 – 1/2″ plywood circle at 9-1/2″ in diameter
- 1 – 1/2″ plywood circle at 8″ in diameter
Draw the circles on the sheet of plywood and cut them out with a jigsaw. They can also be cut out using a jig and a bandsaw. Drill a 3/8″ hole all the way through the center of each circle.
Cut the pieces of 1″ round dowel rod. Drill a 3/8″ hole (approximately 1/2″ deep) in the center of each end of the dowel pieces.
Drill a 3/8″ hole in the center of the wood base. Use a handsaw to cut one of the dowel pins to approximately 1-1/4″ long. Insert one end of the dowel pin into one end of the 2″ long piece of round dowel. Apply a thin bead of adhesive around the dowel pin on the bottom of the dowel, then position the round dowel piece on the base (with the other end of the dowel pin in the hole). Let the adhesive set.
Apply a thin bead of adhesive along the edge of the base and secure the wood balls in place. The base I used has a routed edge and the balls fit perfectly inside.
Insert a dowel pin into one end of each round dowel piece. Insert the finial into the end of one of the round dowel pieces (opposite the dowel pin). This will be the top piece.
Apply a thin bead of adhesive around the dowel pin on the bottom of the round dowel piece then insert the dowel pin through the hole in the 8″ round plywood piece. Allow the adhesive to dry. Apply a thin bead of adhesive to the open end (the end opposite the dowel pin) of another round dowel piece, then insert the dowel pin that is sticking out from the bottom of the 8″ circle seating the dowel rod firmly against the bottom of the circle. Repeat with the 9-1/2″ circle and ending with the 12″ circle, layering the pieces and ending at the base.
I also used adhesive to secure a few of the wood balls around the bottom of the finial where it meets the round dowel.
Finish the stand as desired. I used a dark brown stain to give the stand a rustic look. Add the felt pads to the bottom of the base.
This is a great project for displaying candles and other decor. Or… Line the tiers with parchment paper and place cupcakes or other treats on them! Have any questions on how to build a DIY three tier wood stand? Leave a comment below!
