Little big for my ears but I like them, especially the spear shaped wood finished ones

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

I’m having a hard time cutting circles, do you have any advice on how to cut them this small?
I currently don’t have a bandsaw, but I hope this will change in the next few days :)

Munja a lathe would be a good option if you have one.

Big Ben, unfortunately i don’t have a lathe, and I will not pay over 1200-1500$ for the cheapest one.
They’re very expensive here in Croatia :(

I currently do use a hole saw, and it’s somewhat tricky to get the perfect circle.
Hopefully I will buy a band saw soon and try to make a circles on it :)

I use a scroll saw and sanders, with practice you can get pretty good circles!
Nice job on the earrings!

I like your wooden earrings. good design. I make earrings to and use 20 Gage wire for most of my designs. I am a scroll saw artist and am good at cutting circles as well. I made a ring for my finger once with my scroll saw. I have my own design in makings what I call spring hooks that hook into the ear and is much better than the french hooks you buy in the store.

Have your say...
