I recently completed this wall-mounted necklace cabinet as an anniversary gift for my wife. It was definitely the toughest project I’ve undertaken, but I took my time and was pleased with how it turned out. Many of you can appreciate the many decisions as I went through this process, from material selection, to design, to construction. I was aiming for a design that combined elements from both traditional (frame and panel, molding at top) and modern (flush set door and drawer, sleek straight lines on the lower portion) styles. I was pleased with the low luster finish given by the oil on the walnut and wax on the cherry panel. I really like the walnut/cherry combo, and I think I’ll have to use that again in the future.

very nice clean design. the walnut will lighten and the cherry darken over time and the contrasts won’t be so extreme. super gift..she must be very pleased you made it.

Beautiful. I like those planks on the inside. It will be a shame to add the jewelry; then you can’t see the wood. lol

I mean, I know it’s not simple project to complete, but you make it look so clean. Yes, so freakin’ pretty! Just such a great choice of woods. Bravo.
