in exchange for this fun project.
The powder coated legs are so wonderful. Smooth and clean.
They don't rust and they look fabulous, available in many colors!
I got the 6 inch turquoise.
Ah, look at that mint and the pink! I love them!
I want them in every color!
They are sturdy and super well made.
They make them when you order them, so they are your exact specifications.
They are steel, sand blasted and then powder coated for a thick glossy cover.
They are proudly made in the USA!
They range in size from 6 to 30 inches.
Let's make it now!
I decided to make a cakestand with hairpin legs!
They would make a great breakfast tray for bed too!
These hairpin legs do all the work. This is a snap!
11 1/8 square pine board
Four Turquoise 6" Hairpin Legs (from DIY Hairpin Legs)
Eight #6 5/8" wood screws
Eight #10 washers
so I used the table saw to cut a square.
Then lined up the legs on the pine.
I had this pine on hand...when it's summer time,
I want to swap it out for a big thick log slice.
Because the pine board is only 3/4" thick, it requires shorter screws than the
1 inch they include with the legs. This works for a cake stand because there wont be a
lot of pressure on it. If it was for a bench, table or desk, I'd recommend a sturdier board
so it doesn't buckle and break when weight it on it.
But, for a cake stand, it's perfect!
I used washers to make sure they didn't wear through the holes.
This is what I use for a clear coat to keep it nice, protected, sanitary and easy to clean.
I think it's adorable and want a 3-tiered wedding cake on it!
