I have chosen to make an earring stand. The two wood stand is made from Scottish Yew and Oak. From the top, the stand has an Oak finial which nestles nicely onto the yew earing holder - which in side view looks a bit like a Chinese umbrella.
This part of the project proved quite interesting in that there are 24 holes equally positioned around the outer periphery of the umbrella shape.
Each hole is the clearance diameter of an earing hanger pin. This was achieved by making a special drilling fixture and using my lathe indexing system, I hope that didn't sound to technical, but I was pleased with the result. The underneath of the umbrella portion I have included some decoration and its where the centre Oak spindle is doweled and glued to hold all three items together. The nicely shaped centre spindle meets up with the Yew base, that I have dished to accommodate further items of jewellery, rings etc. There is small amount of decoration under the stand base to finish it off. I was pleased with the end result. This object would graciously adorn any ladies dressing table - I do hope you agree. All the above was sealed, Danish oiled and paste waxed.
