I can’t bring myself to toss interesting cut-offs away. I have found a way to use them up. EARRINGS! Wooden jewelry is HOT right now. These wooden gems are fun to make and lightweight and comfortable to wear.

The above photos are in Paduak, Manzanita, Gaboon Ebony, Olive, Bloodwood and Zebrawood.

Thanks for looking!

Very cool, my GF loves different earings and things like this. I may have to surprise her with some.

Dusty, They look great. Love working on things like this, because my wife gets involved with them as well and works on the finishing.

Larry, You can buy findings for them at most craft supply stores or online.

Thanks, everyone, for your input. I got the sterling hooks at Michael’s, a chain of craft supply houses here in Central Florida. Then, as I started selling them I got a quantity deal on Ebay.

I use a 12” Craftsman bandsaw with a 1/8” blade, and sand to 600 grit by hand. Then three coats of lacquer and caranuba wax
