This display rack is Cherry and Box Elder and it has a tiger eye cabochon in the top. It is finished with Deft Clear Gloss Lacquer.

I needed more display space for my bracelets for a show on Saturday so I went hunting for stock to make into one. I found this cherry log with a split all the way to the center and thought, how can work that crack into the design.I split it on the band saw into 3 pieces and added some box elder for contrast. I thought the cherry will darken so it better be a light colored wood. The pegs are also made from cherry from the other half of the log. It split a little more after I turned it. That wood was only 8% and still cracking. It was cut in 2008..I hope it is done now!!

That a nice looking display stand. With the variations in color from your wood choices it seems to go with all of the bracelets. Well Done!

This is a beautiful display piece. A bit taller and it would be perfect for necklaces as well, maybe a smaller peg for some rings. You could have another thing to sell.
Wonderful

Thanks for posting I have been thinking of making something like this for my wife and her necklaces. I really like the vertical vise on the drill press. I have not seen anything like that.

Hi GS. I may make a taller one if I get back into necklace making this winter in Arizona.

The vertical vise is hole drilling fixture for drilling right through the center of round stock. I made it when I was in the tool room and it is within .001 of center on a 1 3/4” piece. I have over 40 hrs of grinding in it to get it right on…...............Jim

Hi Jim, your work always amazes me, you always manage to make something out of nothing. Those bracelets are beautiful too.

Thanks for sharing how to solve a cracked piece Jim and all the best to you at the show, dont forget to take photos of your displays and sharing it with us.

Really cool Jim, not only to make it and the way it came out, but the fact that you even reclaimed a broken piece of wood this way – amazing.
Best thoughts,
