“Owl Earring Hanger #2”, Daniel D. Brown, 2017

I decided to make a simpler Owl earring hanger – One that takes less time to assemble and is much less unwieldy to ship. i.e. one that’s actually worth it for me to make and sell to people. This first one was an experiment with home-made stains using vinegar and steel wool.

Note the hanging basket in which studs and earring backs can be placed.

Purchase at the Laughing Mantis Studio Etsy Store ($150)!

“Shadow Box Coffee Table,” Daniel D. Brown, 2004

I have a huge collection of fossils, shells, rocks, and other natural artifacts. I also had an old shitty table with particleboard insets. I decided to cut those out, build a shadow box, , a drawer, new legs, and get a custom-cut glass top (extra thick so my pets can jump on it without fear of breaking).

It’s not exactly well built or anything. But I’m pretty pleased with it for someone who hasn’t a clue what he’s doing.

Here was the process:
