3D Printed Mitutoyo Caliper Wallmount

I designed and printed two wall-mount holders for Mitutoyo Digital Calipers.  They are simple designs that are easy to print.  Check them out on Thingiverse and my Github page.

The holders are designed to mount flush up against a wall using 4 screws. The screw holes are 4mm diameter with a 7mm diameter x 4mm deep countersink hole for the screw head.

Plywood Jewelry Holder

The Project

I created a three part youtube video series on how I made a Jewelry Holder for my wife’s Christmas present out of plywood.   It’s mainly designed to hang necklaces from, but also has storage for bracelets, earring, rings, anything really.  It’s designed to hang on the wall, like a picture frame.

Lessons Learned

There are a few things that I would do different on the next project.

  • I was originally planning on drilling the hooks in place, but I found it awkward and impossible in some places to drill the pilot holes in place. So I ended up removing the dividing strips to install the hooks.  Not a huge deal, but there was some potential for damaging the enamel coating I had already sprayed.
  • Also, the dividing strips are tall enough that I really should’ve attached them at the miters. Because they are not attached together, the miters have some visible gaps.
