With summer’s heat now passed and a distracting election behind us, fall’s crisp air and shortening days can help change our focus to a woodturner’s next real season: holiday gift-making. So we’d be remiss if we didn’t offer you a plan that will be both enjoyable to create and exciting to hide under the tree in about a month. Kip Christensen’s earring stand — the focus of our AAW feature article — should check both of those boxes nicely. You’ll need a block of wood about 3-1/2″ square and 6″ long to turn the project’s base, center post, earring carrier and finial without separating the parts. The end result, which really amounts to an elaborate spindle, will benefit from a continuous grain pattern from top to bottom. We hope you’ll enjoy making Kip’s design so much that you’ll be reaching for a second block of wood as soon as the first one is parted off. After all, the more the merrier!
