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.
