Well, as you all know, women need shiny stuff. Lot's of it. Necklaces, bracelets, belts and so on.
Problem my girlfriend had was, where to keep all that? Most of it was stacked in drawers, always tangled and a living hell to find 'that purple one' or something. So, to make her life a bit easier i decided i had to make something to organise everything so it's easy to pick out the jewelry, matching the outfit.
In this instructable I wil explain the project i finished last christmas in the shed at -8C... (damn cold)
Here is the end result:
Step 1: Design
So, first i needed to think of what and how exactly. I had a somewhat limited space. I wanted it to be as symmetrical as possible. She already had a nice mirror so i wanted to integrate that as well if possible. Now how to make a fully customizable board... Some necklaces are long, others are short... what else kind of jewelry women have?
The idea grew and i went to the hardware store. I found these M5 nuts. Also found some bolts which are perfect. That would be ideal! The thing is, the shaft is smooth and there is only M5 on the bottom part. This makes sure the stuff hanging from it will not damage. I used 50mm ones.
So, i bought lot's of these.
Note: If anyone will also create such a board, use M6. There are much more sizes of these bolts available in M6! This design error forced me to create some specials for the bracelets later on in the design.
A large wooden board. Try to keep in mind how big your car is... I had to have them cut off 5cm heheh
