This jewelry armoire has been my favorite project so far. The frames are bubinga, the panels madrone burl veneered plywood, and the interior cherry. The slide outs utilize accuride drawer slides underneath them and a dowel pin on top. The finish is danish oil, shellac seal coat, and spray laquer. Hope you all enjoy!

That’s a really nice looking piece, simple line which really stand out. Your attention to detail on grain orientation has really paid off.

I am going to add it to my favourites. Do you have a plan or is it your own design?

Well done

Thank you all for the kind words. Bluekingfisher, I borrowed different design ideas from various armoires I have seen on this site and others. I then kind of drafted plans as I went along until I was happy with the outcome.

Real nice.

The “accuride drawer slides” makes me ask what the dimensions are?

The dimensions are 20” wide x 18” tall x 12” deep. I used the 10” full extension slides from Lee Valley.
