In an effort to bring further order to the chaos that is my bedroom, I needed to find a way to store and neatly put away my jewelry. I also thought it would be cool to display my jewelry as decoration. I wanted pieces that could be displayed within a bedroom on a display shelf or dresser. Or it could go on top of an island in the middle of my dream walk-in closet (I’m already planning for my next house). The solution for my earrings and necklaces came in the form of a bathroom cabinet converted into a wall hanging jewelry box. Now for my dozens of bangles, I needed something specific to bracelets where I could easily identify my pieces and organize by color. I contemplated making bracelet holders out of flimsy paper towel tubes. However, many of my bracelets are heavy and require a little more support. So I decided to make a woodworking project out of it. It also gave me an excuse to buy that Ryobi router table I’d been eying for some time.

Cost:
Approx. $14 for 4 holders

Materials:
(This will make 4 bracelet holders)
1 – 48 in. x 2 in. Wood Round Dowel
1 – 7/8 in. x 48 in. Hardwood Dowel
2 – Any 2”x6” or 2”x10” piece cut down to 10” For the base8
8 – Wood screws 2 1/2” in length
Wood glue
Paint and Stain as desired
Required Tools:
Drill
7/8 spade bit (Note you only need the basic spade bit. Stay away from daredevil bit with the screw tip. That bit is too powerful for this small project).

OK, Let's Get Dirty!

Nicely done! This would work good for my wife when when she displays her jewelry at craft shows.
