orientation question

David Breth
>My sister saw something at a craft show that I thought I would make for her and for my wife, but I'm having trouble deciding the orientation.

Don't have a photo, but it is pretty simple to describe. Picture a mushroom. On the edge of the mushroom, drill holes all the way around it so you can hang ear rings off of it. Make a lidded top for it so you can store jewelry trinkets inside. You are done.

I'm torn between going end grain or side, because I'm not sure which orientation will have the strongest side to hang the ear rings. Admittedly, those don't weigh a lot, but of course, anything is subject to taking a dinger off the edge of a table, etc.

I would appreciate your thoughts -

David B.
