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.
