DIY Jewellery stand

"I work as an aged care nurse and one of our residents has so much jewellery that is all tangled up in a box. Every morning I would spend a long time trying to untangle a necklace for her to wear. To solve this problem I made her a stand to display all her jewellery. I added lots of hooks for her necklaces and space for her rings and broaches. This stand not only looks great on her table, but she can also now see at a glance what she can wear. I made this stand using all recycled materials."

Materials List

  • Scrap wood
  • jigsaw
  • router
  • sander
  • hooks
  • fabric
  • wood glue
  • doorknob
  • Chair spindle


  1. Cut 2 circles of wood, the bottom bigger than the top.

  2. Using a router remove the middle section of both wood circles to make a lip. This will stop the jewellery from falling off.

  3. I used a chair spindle for the poles. You can use a doweling rod if you don't have suitable wood.

  4. To smooth out the bottom and the sides I used my orbital sander. For the smaller one, I used a sanding wheel because my sander would not fit into the hole.

  5. I used some cardboard to cut a template for the felt that would line the bottom. I stained and varnished the pieces.

  6. I found the centre of my circles and drilled a hole slightly smaller than the nut that fits on the bottom of the pole. I mixed up some epoxy resin and filled the hole then very gently tapped the nut into the hole with a hammer.

  7. I used my cardboard template to cut my felt and glued it down to the base. The bottom of the pole screwed into the nut. For the top, I drilled a hole in the centre for the screw to come through and cut away some of the felt so I could glue the top down. The top pole was just a piece that I cut off the pole.

  8. I found the right sized screw and cut off its head. I drilled a pilot hole in the top of the post for the screw and used it to attach the pole to the glass doorknob. I added some curtain hooks to the top and my stand was complete.
