We recently finished this curly maple jewelry cabinet. It has eight removable, vellvet bottomed, sidehung drawers/trays with removable dividers, a stool, and a mirror inside. It was an interesting and challenging project and my younger son Will did an excellent job with the building and finishing of it … i did the drawings with the clients and talked him through it from time to time, but mostly, he was pretty much on his own with it … He did a great job imho …
There are more an larger photos as well as process descriptions on my dorset customfurniture blog
