1. Design in solidworks
For this build you are going to need a wooden plank, brass pipe or in my case a hexagonal rod and two M8 Screws. I I firstly cut down the wood to a size of 13x7 cm for the base and 20x8 cm for the upper part. After that I used my router to smooth and fillet corners on both chunks. Then I use a 100 grid sandpaper to remove any chips left on both parts. In the middle of the base I drilled two 8mm holes for the screws. On the other part I used 7 mm bit so threads of the screw could grip hardly into the wood. On the other side of the base I made 15 mm holes but just a few mm deep, so the screw head could hide all the way in.
3. Machining legs
After that I cut 2 brass pieces and drilled an 8 mm hole through the whole piece. After that was done I used a very rough sandpaper to make small grooves on both parts. I taught that would give a more rustic look to the watch stand. I used a paper towel to paint both parts with a light brown primer and after that I also applied a protective lacquer for nicer finish. Now I assemble everything up together and our watch stand is finished.
I am really happy with how it turned out. You may see a few differences if you watched a solidworks tutorial but I think it is even better now and You can of course make shorter or longer one if you have to many watches laying around.
