My Sister asked me to make a jewelry hanger. I decided to combine two techniques to make it. The first technique was to make a hanger with circles (using a circle jig for the router), the second technique was to make a wooden mold around a steel wire (cf. picture 2, 5 and 6: picture 2 is taken from the bottom showing the wire, picture 5 and 6 show the making of the wooden mold). That’s how the jewelry hanger can be turned around while the base of the hanger stays in the same place (cf. picture 3 vs. picture 4: the base stays in the same position, but the hanger is easily turned around). The wood is all cambara (from Brasil)

Note: my wife tested the hanger for some weeks and noted that the holes for the earrings are a little too far inside the wood. The holes are actually 1 cm from the side of the wood, 0,5 cm would have been better.

Nice work, I had the same problem on one of my earings holder. 5mm depth is kind of the golden middle, you can even go thinner but you’ll be compromising the strength of the hole. Great idea though for the necklaces hangers.

Thanks, but You’re right; the holes in the top disc are 7 mm from the border, they are a little better (the rest is all at 1 cm). But next time I’ll put them all at 5 mm.
