Last Oct. my daughter in-law requested a wall mounted jewelry cabinet for Xmas. She had a general idea of the size but not much else to guide me. Here is what I came up with after some internet searches and a few of my own ideas. It is made of cherry (with cherry Danish oil and wax finish). It measures about 22” wide X 30” tall X 7” deep. The doors are 2” deep.
The top center wood hooks are for necklaces, the bar below is for bracelets. There is an open shelf and two small drawers, both felt lines.
The left door has lots of space for earrings and in the bottom a place to store rings.
The right door has an upper section I left open and I provided some fancy stainless steel hooks (cup type) that she can place where she needs them, below that a mirror and below that more ring storage.
With out a fixed plan it took a lot longer than I thought it would but I think she will be pleased..

Looks great! I just finished something very similar but the inside was nowhere near as nice. I used cherry too.

Great job! I like the look with the danish oil on the cherry.

The Cherry colored Danish oil worked well on the cherry. It evened out the variation in the natural colors of the wood. Of course it will darken in time and that will be the real test.

Nice job Les.
Your daughter in law must have a lot of jewelry.
I’d like to make one but a slightly smaller version.
The finish came out nicely too.

Have your say...
