DIY a Jewelry Organizer.. a simple how to

I thought I would share how I made a Jewelry organizer recently,
to hold some of my bracelets and necklaces, and display them instead of
having them in a drawer and sort of forgotten about.. :0)

What I used for this project:

- tape measure (or ruler)
- dowel rods ( 7/8" & 7/16" )
- wood block (2x4 cut to approx. 5") & decorative block for base (optional)
- wood glue
- saw
- sander (or sandpaper)
- paint

First, I measured how long I wanted my display rods for hanging jewelry on..
for this particular one I went with 10 inches. (so we cut 3 of them from the larger dowel)

Then I decided on the height that I wanted each, so we cut the smaller dowel at:  12", 8", and 5"

Then we found the center of the base block, as well as the 10" larger dowel pieces, marked
them with a sharpie/pencil..  and proceeded to drill the holes with the 7/16" size bit.
(we drilled the holes at approx. 1/2" depth - give or take)

I lightly sanded around the holes and ends, then I used some gorilla glue and glued all the pieces together. 

I let it dry overnight..
then decorated/painted it.

Fun and easy project, and you can decorate it however you like to suit your taste.
(and so much better and sturdier than the lightweight cardboard types)
