My wife has hung necklaces on hangers, hooks and all manner of things, but they’ve always been in a bundle. We’re just getting set up in our new home, and this was a simple project to tackle. But as always, it gave us other ideas…

This one is will hang on the wall in our (her) walk-in closet. It won’t be an obstruction because it will hang flush on the wall, and is only a couple inches deep. We did find out after that she gave me the the wrong length of her longes necklace, so that’s why this one is “version 1”.

We’re also thinking about adding something for bracelets near the bottom.

I thought this might be a simple project for Christmas gifts that the women in my life might find useful.

The basic form was inspired by David Mark’s Open Display Case project. My next one will include some “embellishments”.

Great idea. Looks a little familliar. Check this display cabinet out that I made for my daughter in law last year.

Hers was made for doing jewelry shows ( kinda like tuperware shows) She could fold it up and take along with her to the shows. I made 4 of these that stand back to back and latch togather on a table. All with different layouts for the different lengths(necklaces, bracelets, earrings)

Thought it might give you more ideas for your next one.

Looks great. keep it up.

Thanks, Scrappy – We haven’t talked about doing one similar to yours as a wall-hanging unit, and I think your design could work for some of the Christmas gifts. Thanks for sharing.

I love the look of this, fantastic work.
What did you use for the backing where the necklaces hang?

MrsN- I guess I should have read a little closer – I used 1/4” ply, with the Donjer. The brass hooks are JUST long enough to stick through, so you either have to use 3/8” ply or grind down the tip of the hook from the back.
