Sorry about the pics…not sure why they’re loading sideways. Tried a few different orientations and they still come up sideways.

Backstory to the project: I travel to Sitka, Alaska, from time to time and found a local artisans store. One jeweler in particular caught my eye and the SO loved them. So, every time I’m there I buy up a few examples and put them in storage for those times I’ve forgotten a special date, etc.

Anyway, she doesn’t have a good way to store or display the earrings and they end up falling behind the dresser, etc. So, after looking for a long time for a decent solution I came up with this one. It’s an x-mas present so she hasn’t even seen it yet, but it will match our bedroom furniture. Cherry and maple make up the project and it’s finished with two coats of danish oil and three light coats of clear spray finish.

found that when I load pics from my cell phone I have to save them to my pc. Then use something like paint and save them again and then load that. it fixes the orientation problem :)
