I have made some Ear Ring Stands for sale at craft shows. I was asked to make a bigger one for a person’s mother. She has about 20 earring and necklace sets. Redwood Burl from Larry Dubia in Santa Cruz area. Curly Big leaf maple from John Ormsby in Sacramento. Both fellow Lumberjocks. Great ideas and great wood from people on this site!!
I used Watco Danish Oil for the finish. The pegs are for cribbage boards that I have not completed. (too many design changes) Can anyone spot the big goof I did when I put this together? This comes from rushing and not taking time to step back and look at the project before the glue sets up.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Got the bottom cross piece in backwards didn’t cha? Still looks great! I’m thinking it will get passed down in the family as an heirloom for many generations.

Thanks for the comments. I offset one of the rows of pegs to be in the middle slat, but I put it in the bottom space. The buyer didn’t mind. They like it and the wood choices. they asked if I had any more!
