The main components of the jewelry cabinet are made from the last few pieces of air dried black walnut from a tree that was cut down in 1976. The doors are made from a piece of cherry left over from a previous project. I used the resawing method with my new MiniMax MM16 bandsaw to obtain the matching cherry doors.
The six drawers are made of black walnut with half blind dovetails and cherry pulls.
The secret compartment was made by keeping the drawers 2 inches shorter than the depth of the cabinet. The top of the cabinet is divided into two sections. The first section is glued to the cabinet and the last section is removable to gain access to the secret compartment. The joint between the fixed cabinet top and the removable section is disguised by jointing two cherry strips in the black walnut top. The secret compartment contains a box with a sliding top.
