DIY Honeycomb Hexagon Necklace & Giveaway

Build: diy honeycomb hexagon necklace

Make this wood honeycomb hexagon necklace just in time for Mother's Day.

I made this hexagon shape using the Rockwell BladeRunner saw and now you have the chance to win one for yourself:

And you can make this honeycomb necklace or leave off the leather cording and use it to hold earrings and rings:

Using the miter gauge make 6 - 1" long cuts with a 30 degree miter on both ends:

Glue all 6 ends together.  I used Elmer's ProBond Advance because it has a super precise nozzle and dries clear.

Trace the hexagon shape onto 1/8" basswood.  The Rockwell BladeRunner is so controlled it makes cutting the tiny backing piece so easy.  Glue the backing onto the hexagon and sand edges smooth.

Paint the interior, drill 2 holes on opposing sides and push leather cording through holes.

My daughter hijacked the honeycomb hexagon necklace after school yesterday but it looks so fun on her.

Enter to win your own Rockwell BladeRunner, the giveaway is open to any US resident.
