I have a show to do and I needed a bracelet display rack so I did not have to spread them out all over a table. I wanted it to look better than K mart so I decided to go with a yin / yang style using walnut and box elder. I have thought about this for weeks and made a dozen drawings of different racks that just did not look right.
I have made a couple of oval shaped handles before and thought that might work good for the rack if I could turn two ovals. I laid up all the pieces and this is the result. The ovals are mounted at 30 degrees off the horizontal. I decided that one is each color could be used to highlight different woods better the both the same. It is finished with semi gloss Deft lacquer
I added picture of the rack from 3 angles , full of bracelets ,disassembled and a shot of the cut off ends with the 3 centers I used to make the ovalsl. It worked pretty slick.
This is ready to go for the July show.
