I had to stop the jewellery stand part way through in order to find a way to drill the evenly spaced holes around the circumference. This is what I came up with.

That’s not the first time you did some metal-work either. Great job Harry.

Great work Harry!

Lucky my Woodfast lathe already has indexing on the shaft pulleys.

Thank you guys, your nice comments are appreciated. Recently a fellow member posted an indexing system that he had made out of MDF and formed the thread by screwing it onto the headstock. I’m sure that this could be done using the rest of my methodology.
