Here is a picture of one of the Jewelry Display Stands I made for my daughter in law for christmass 07.
Frame is made from dimension oak 1×4 Backs are 1/4 Ply from a crate at work. ( love scrap wood)
Put in runners to screw the hooks into. 1/2×1/4 Oak.
The earings are hanging on a piece of plastic trim angle. Mounted the ends on blocks of oak. Used angle to give them some stand out from the back and extra strength from the L shape.
The Closure hook is reversable so when these are set up on a table for a “Jewelry Party” they can be placed back-to -back and latched together.
Hinges are brass stamped for a little style.
When I put the back panel into a rabbit, I left the panel a little small and painted the edges black to give this a look of being trimed. ( you have to remember, this was all done BEFORE i found LJ’s and learned how to put a small opposing color in to give the box look a litle more POP)
Also the corners and pack panel are (should I say it) Nailed on. :-(
At the time that was the easier way to do this. Doing it over, would have used half-lap or keyed miters. (lots stronger)
All inner surfeces lined with black crushed velvet useing a spray on contact cement. That is something else I won’t repeat. Had a devil of a time getting that stuff laid on without any rinkles, over ridges, and up around the sides. no no no not again!
Here is a similar one done by JohnMarr that I think looks better. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/16943
Please leave all comments and critques. I know this has flaws!
Sory, Almost forgot…..The last picture is what my freind in the Corean busness is doing to try and get more sales. Useing scraps and cut offs they have started to make candle holders and center pieces that match your counters. very nice scroll work on thee. (I did not make this)
-- Scrap Wood's the best...the projects are smaller, and so is the mess!
