My wife needed a display for her retail jewelry business. Her earrings and pendants are on cards with a plastic holder on the back. I had some old barnwood that I ran through the surface planner and milled to about 3/4” thick, then jointed the edges and made up panels for the upper and lower base. The edges were routed with a ogee bit and I made the uprights from the same 3/4 milled stock. I taped the 4 upright corners pieces together and drilled all the holes at the same time keeping everything even and exact. The bars are 1/8” welding rods (about $15) and I got the 6” lazy-susan base hardware at HomeDepot for about $4.50. The top was just a quickly turned handle on the lathe. Sanded to 220 and finished with a couple coats of danish oil. The dimensions are 11” sq by about 16” high.

Very nice work! I’ve been thinking about making one of these for my jewelry business, and this might just be the push I needed.
