The 6 will need to be on a 6" cake board and the 8 will need to be on an 8" cake board..the 10 needs to be a drum...at least 1/2" thick. 


The 6 will need to sit on top of supporting dowels that you put in the 8...the 10 will need dowels or the 8 to sit on.  I then use a center dowel that goes through all layers...and into the drum.
