Earing/Ring storage stand

Picked this idea up of the internet with a few modifications of my own. The top and bottom of all stands were made from Ash, a particularly difficult piece with a very large knot in the centre of the board. These stands were cut from around the area of the knot with the knot itself used to make a bowl (later posting). The grain on all of these pieces was very disturbed and difficult to work but I used a self made face plate turning tool that worked absolutely perfect (more about this tool at a later date), leaving no torn fibres even across the grain, making finishing a very easy task indeed. The top was indexed with 24×1.5 mm holes drilled around the periphery using my home made drilling post and my home made index locating tool. The drill post I posted a few week ago the indexing locator I will post some time in the future. the decorative inserts in the top of two of the stands was done using the same drill post and indexer. The stem of the stands was made from Teak. The top and bottom were both turned on a screw chuck with the 10 mm hole drilled for the screw chuck used as the dowel joint for the stand. Finished with one coat cellulose sander sealer and two coats Melamine lacquer. These have been made a Christmas presents for female members of the family, but they would make interesting items on a craft fair.

great job on those stands. I have a project on my list to do and one of them is a ear ring stand. Looks a lot like what you have made but different.
