I dont have rings, i dont have earrings, so made a box to hold just necklaces.
They were formerly in the bedside table drawer, in many ziploc bags, and I couldnt
quickly find what I wanted. A box a half meter across, with hanging on the doors too,
lets me see over 40 at once. 32 pegs, some have 2 or 3 items on.
It is curved about 8 cm out from the wall, and as you can see about 2 cm vertically.
It’s an unknown (probably Queensland maple) crotch veneer, over bendy ply,
over curved rails and straight stiles, which are of bluegum.
Then there had to be a shelf-unit in the middle, just to hold the floor and ceiling
the right length apart. That is, same in the middle as at the ends .. “it seemed a
good idea at the time” to have some parts square ! it was hard enough to
assemble doors curved in 2 dimensions.
If it were a bigger photo, you might notice that the curve in the shelf-unit is
similar to the curve in the verticals of the over-bed bookshelf
which I made years & years ago, and that is similar to the curve on
the bedside-table top edges. Except inverted.
The hanging-pegs are of bluegum too. It has black stretch-velvet, which is of
polyester, so less problem glueing to posterboard than acetate velvet.
The only problem was that after I hung it, a couple of times I was getting stuff
out of the laundry basket below, forgot there is now a cabinet there, and
banged the head.
Oh, and I am a little disappointed that the crotch figure looked better
outside in the sunlight, than in the corner with less light. Pic 4 is without flash,
so you can see the figure looks quite different in lower light.
p.s. anyone else going to the Utah show next week ?
