I made this for my wife for our anniversary after I realized that she keeps all of her earrings piled up on a tiny plate. It was our 5 year (wood) anniversary, which was pretty fortuitous.

The base was African sapele scrap, routed with an ogee. The main support was a 1-1/4in poplar dowel that I shaped into a heart using a bandsaw, router, and lots of sanding. The small dowels I soaked in water and bent, my first time bending wood… gotta start somewhere I guess.

I also made the two pairs of wood earrings but I won’t get offended if she doesn’t wear them, it was my first crack at it and they turned out just okay. They were made with slivers of sapele.

Beautiful earring stand! Like the design and the wooden earrings as well. I’m sure she likes them too!
