One of my DF’s old high school teachers is an amazing woodworker (is that the right term?) and as a wedding present he offered to make our cake stand.
It’s freaking AMAZING. He cut the tree down himself, which came from land on DF’s old high school. Then he sanded the crap out of it and added about 8 layers of lacquer. We asked for something kind of rustic and I think it’s perfect. I think it’s just beautiful, and it’s so heavy! I’ve put my hand in one picture for scale.

@crookedframe: What did he do with the rest of the tree?

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon: I’m sure he’s working on other projects with it. I’m not too sure.
ETA: it was a tree that needed to be cut down, so it’s not like he was just going and destroying a perfectly good tree.

Thank you all!
@Spade504: We’re getting a two-tier cake like this, but without the flowers, and more colourful (teal ombre on bottom tier, purple ombre on top) with some peach, yellow and coral bunting as the cake topper.
