"J" is for Jewelry Stand

Build: jewelry stand


Build this simple and pretty jewelry stand using scrap wood, dowels and clear beads.
And personalize your jewelry stand too:


Functional and classy complete with a felt covered base:




You can make your own for much less and then spend what you saved on more jewelry!


How to build a jewelry stand:

1. Cut wood pieces:


2. Make base edge frame using glue and finish nails:


3. Secure frame to mdf base using finish nails up through the base:


4. Drill 1/2" holes through main dowel for 2 posts:


5. Assemble using glue and one 2" screw into the main dowel up through the base.
Prime and spray paint high gloss white:


 6. To add decorative jewels use 1/2" clear beads and one hardware knob.
Predrill hole at center end of dowel.
Use finish nails and glue to secure beads:


7. For personalization print out name, I used Garamond font at 90 point.
Step 2: Line up print out at center of long side and trace using ballpoint pen.
Step 3: The pen leaves a visible indent in the wood.
Step 4: Paint on and inside the indent.


8. Paint the interior of the tray light pink:


9. To add felt bottom use spray adhesive:


10. Press firmly onto base and trim away excess for a clean edge:
