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.
Approx. $14 for 4 holders
(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
Paint and Stain as desired
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).
