Introduction: Make a Wooden Pendant on a Necklace
It’s nice to have access to many necklace pendants so you can change often. I decided to make a few and found out that it is fun and easy. Give it a try with this instructable.
Step 1: This Is What You Need
- Two pieces of wood (2 inch x 2 inch and 1/8 inch thick) I used birch and walnut)
- a picture that you want to cut
- wood glue
- a drill
- a clamp
- a rasp
- silver wire (or other wire)
Step 2: Glue
Glue the design on one of the wooden discs. You can dilute the glue with a little bit of water (It will be easier to remove the paper when a you have diluted the glue). Let it dry.
Step 3: Drill
Drill a hole in the center of your design.
Step 4: Cut
Prepair your jigsaw and cut your design. When your design is very tiny you can drill some holes in advance. This will make it easier.
Step 5: Sand and Rasp
Remove the picture with sandpaper and use a rasp to smoothen the edges.
Step 6: Glue and Clamp
Use wood glue to glue the two discs and clamp them together.
Step 7: Cut, Drill and Apply Wax
Cut your pendent in the shape you like. Drill a hole. Apply wax on the surface.
Step 8: Bend and Fasten and Enjoy
Make a ring with pliers and sliver wire. Fasten to pendant. Fasten on the chain and enjoy!
