I saved it on a notepad a while back, here ya go!!

Well, my father has made me a few in the past, and the one below was made by a local carpenter. I don't know much about woodworking, but I've been PM'd about these stands so much that I'll give the dimensions and a few photos here for you to make your own.

My largest white 4 TIER BOXES CUPCAKE STAND, is made from hollow boxes of MDF (that's medium density fibreboard. It's not solid wood, or it would be very very heavy.) The dimensions of the one I have are as follows:

-top box is 6" x 6" x 6" tall
-2nd box is 12" x 12" x 6" tall
-3rd box is 24" x 24" x 6" tall
-4th box is 36" x 36" x 6" tall

They all fit together using wooden slats. BUT, they are great for smaller weddings/events because I don't have to use all 4 boxes. Sometimes I just use 3 or even 2 for really tiny parties. As is, using all 4 boxes, this stand is absolutely HUGE. It's 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide!!!

Using all 4 boxes, I can fit 144 of my large cupcakes in a neat display....or 140 cupcakes + a cake on top.

We painted the display using a non-toxic Ivory oil-based paint. (Ivory in case there is a tiny stain, easier to conceal than pure pure white. Oil-based paint is a must, as it's easier to wipe clean than latex.)
