As my initial project in my new shop, my wife asked me to create a jewelry holder for the closet. Who am I to argue with that?

So I drew up a plan in SketchUp and then went down to the local box store…

I used the primed shiplap supplies at the store, and they also had some faux “reclamed” wood pine pieces that were cost effective, so I first rough cut the shiplap to length, spaced them appropriately, then used that overall size to create a frame of 1×2 to mount the shiplap to.

Then i used that same frame dimensions to use more 1×2’s to create a “floating” wall mount frame so that its easy to install.

after mounting the shiplap to the frame, then i used that to create the barn wood casing.

My initial plan was to create a mitered frame case, but with really rough edges, i actually ripped the boards down and used the cut-offs as a face frame to hide the not so pretty edges of the wood. Then i just needed butt joints, much easier.

Finally, i made a jig to help with the alignment of the hanger hardware. Think of a drawer pull alignment jig. that helped center and align the placements.

Turned out pretty well, and the wifey is happy.

on to the next thing…

I favorited a bunch of your earlier projects, you have some neat ideas for accomplishing items. I like how you plan things out in Sketch-Up before cutting the wood. I try to do the same in Rhino3D.

This is a pretty cool project here and am honored to be the first person to comment. The metal wood branch pieces should provide a lot of hangers for jewelry. You may want to consider making some of your own jewelry for the Mrs. Otherwise, your wife will think its fair game to go out and purchase jewelry to fill up the vast storage wall you so kindly made for her.
