Earring holders for upcoming holiday gifts and maybe some future craft shows.

The bases are cut to hold rings, etc., and the tops are drilled to hold earrings.

The smaller one holds 12 pair of earrings and is made from cherry … the larger one holds 18 pair of earrings and is made from walnut. Finish was done with Yorkshire Grit and Hampshire Sheen.

Those are so cool! Is each turned from a single piece? Or are they multiple parts attached together?

- Jeremymcon

Each consists of four parts … base, post, top. and finial.

Assembled with mortise & tenon glue joints.

Solid blocks that size aren’t easy to come by and would waste a lot of wood. Using flat stock, these can be made fairly economically.
