I did a commission of 8 for a client and then so many other customers/clients wanted some so I made a show model. This one is Sapele for the necklace display board, the base is mahogany. No stain, just water based poly on top of sanding sealer. The display board is 8 inches wide by 12 inches tall and 3/4 inch thick. The base is 1-1/2 inches thick and 8×6 rectangle. Back side has screws going down the middle in order to hook longer necklaces so that in the front, they hang down to the correct height.

Very nice. The stand may even look better than the necklace it displays.

Nice shape! ...and beautiful wood.

Pete that is a very nice display. I made one that looks nothing like it then just recently bought a cheap velvet covered version. I think I like the wood much better. Especially like the screw hooks on the back, one of the biggest issues I had was hanging the necklace properly. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks all for the kind remarks. Can’t take too much credit, just doing what most of us woodworkers do, we make the imagination of other materialize, since they can’t…. either they don’t have the right tools or the proper skills. I also enjoy teaching others to do woodwork. Some of the most gratifying time spent in the shop was when I was teaching others safety and techniques.

Great idea and design on that cool stand. It really shows the beauty of the well finished woods.

Have your say...
