Step 1: Making the Jewelry Holder
- Wood of your choice, I used mahogany
- Dowel of your choice, I used oak
- Glue, I used epoxy
- Polyurethane or other finish
- Velcro or other fastening material
- Saw (hand saw, band saw or miter saw)
Cut up a piece of wood in the shape of a triangle. Mine measured about three inches on the long side and the angles were at 60 degrees, however you can make it any way you want. Cut a piece of dowel that measures 9 inches long.
Using epoxy or other glue, attach the dowel on top of the triangle. Let dry and give it a coat of polyurethane for protection.
Cut up a piece of velcro and attach to the back of the holder and attach the other side to the wall. Alternatively use another fastening system.
