A very sturdy base with a heavy threaded rod up the center. Between each lay, use a length of plastic pipe cut very square on the ends. Then a platform, a nut, a pipe, and so on to the top. On the top and bottom of each platform, except the top use only one, you can glue on a disk of wood to fit snug inside each tube or some other method to keep them centered. Visit a trophy shop or cake shop, they do this all of the time.

If it needs to be sturdier, use 4 smaller rods and fit them inside a larger diameter pipe, say 4 inch.

Good luck,

Carrying Bud's comments further, it looks as if they used 3/4" plywood for the main trays with support plates of the same material only smaller. To these smaller supports, they attached 2" plumbing flanges and 2" iron pipe for support. I would surmise the pipes were tightened completely in the upper and lower flanges prior to their attachment to the sub plates so they won't turn or become misaligned with each tray above or below it. Have fun.

Is this a cosmetic/show tiered stand or will it be used to support some weight?

Just curious: what will it be?

Thank to those who have responded so far....

To the last poster, the stand will be used as shown for cupcakes.

I would have to think that it would have to come apart when said and done, so keep that in mind.
