This is a jewelry cabinet made of birch plywood and a little tiny bit of oak for the little knobs. The 3 squares on the door will be covered with fabric and cork to make it a pinning board.

It was my first attempt at box joint and I’m happy with the result. I build a box joint sled and it works well.

I still have to patch the wall…

What a cool idea! I have seen them built with mirrors on the front, but there are so many of those now that burglars know where to look. I really like the way the necklace hangers swing out for easy access. I worked in a jewelry store for 10 years so I recommend lining it with felt, to protect the wood AND the jewelry from scratches. What kind of latch system did you use? Thanks for posting and Welcome to Lumberjocks!

Thank you leafherder. The hinges are from Blum. They came in 1 piece and these are not the easier to install but they cover 1 1/4” inch instead of the standard euro hinge who cover 1/2”.

Great idea. I like the idea of a pinning board.
