hello fellow wood workers, this jewlrey cabinet is what i just made for my sweetheart, who her and i have just had our 30th year anniversary on april 6th, ive made all the furniture for the house but wanted to make something that was just for her, this project was very time consuming and so much fun, the case is dovetailed and the doors also. each drawer slides on oak slides down the center of the drawer, its made from red cedar, walnut, white oak, and some hard maple, all of the wood came from our home area that i had milled at my favorite mill, from rough cut boards to planed and milled pieces.. the cedar doors are one piece of wood..they came from some downded tree’s from a storm we had about 3 years ago..the boards milled out at 12inches wide and 13 feet long..solid heart….they are very beautiful as you can see….i thank the lord for such beautiful wood and him blessing me with the ability to make this for her… this project was for my sweetheart.

Hey Grizz
That’s some wonderful case. It must have taken a long time to put all those drawers together.

a1 jim it did take a lot of time with the drawers..and getting them to slide just right was done by useing my belt sander…i have a bad back so i worked on it when i had good days…..the cedar is some of the nicelst ive seen in a long time…it was a big tree the storn took down….as much as i dont like storms or there problems they cause for the trees, if a tree goes down then i might as well smile all the way to the mill…...and give that tree the honor it deserves…....i cant woodowork like i use to and want too. but im lucky for what i can do…...grizzman

Great idea on building the shop first…. especially if you have to build the house yourself. How long did it take get everything done ?

i built the shop the first year here, then started on the house, the house is mostly done but still lacks a few things…i did the kitchen also..and will maybe post pictures of it sometime, but the inside of our home is done in t and g heart pine, my sons and i were able to dismantle a home built in 1900 and we got as much as we could…2×4’s 2×6’s and 2×8’s we also were able to get around 20 posts that were at each window…most of them are about 5×5 solid heart pine…not one knot…they are beautiful..and all the walls are done in heart pine..i despise sheet rock and only used a little in the bathroom…..so its been an ongoing project but is mostly done…weve been here 13 years now..we were in alaska for 15, came here for family reasons…its been a great time doing all this work, ive also made pretty much all of the furniture for the house…thanks for asking..grizzman

That’s a fine looking jewelry cabinet, Grizz.

This is cool! It is almost like Krenov goes rustic.

I have been going through your projects, you are absolutely a prolific woodworker and I LOVE THAT! It is only time in the shop that will allow a person to grow skilled with his hands, in his ideas, and develop a relationship with his tools.

You obviously have done this.

(This comment goes for all that I seen as I thoughtfully mulled over your projects but have not commented until now.)
