I made this for my mother 2 years ago. She wanted a free standing mirror in her bedroom. I looked for plans and found this mirror/jewelry cabinet plan at meiselwoodhobby.com.

Very cool idea! Nice job. How do you keep it from tipping when the door is opened?

Very cool! My oldest daughter asked for something similar to hang on the wall. I need to favorite this one so I can come back and take notes….

Well done!

That is a very cool and useful design. I realy like that idea. I may have to copy that for my next jewelry box. It could also be incorporated into a table model. It makes a lot of sense to combine those two features. I’ll bet you’re mom get a lot of use of it. Thanks for sharing!!

I am glad everyone likes the project.

I was worried about the tipping factor as well. When you open the mirror the cabinet straightens up. There is a stop peg behind the cabinet so it cannot swing past vertical. When the door is closed it always tilts slightly back so you can see your self in the mirror.

nice design, just seems to make sense to add something like this if you want a standup mirror.
