This cabinet serves two purposes. One side is a packing table for packing your suite cases. The other side is a jewerly lift cabinet. The cylinders outside diameter is 38 1/4”, the lifting drumb is 36” in dia. x 18 5/8” tall. It features 28, 2” deep pull out trays and 2, 4” deep trays. All on wooden slides. The packing table side has six drawers on blum motion slides. The unit dissasembles to go through a 32” opening into the dressing area where it will end up. The cylinder you see here is the second one I made. The first one had an outside diameter of 34 1/4”. After it sat for about two months or so they finally decided that it was to small. The trays were not going to be big enough, soooo I made another 4” bigger. The finish is not done at this point. The final accent colors will be added on site. This is just one small piece for the ladys dressing room and closet area. We’ve been working on this for a year now (its a long story). It has a custom made Inca lift just for this cabinet. Lifting specs 500 lb. It will have a two inch thick stone or granite top to lift as well. The other side will have a 2” cushion of some sort.

Finally we get to move on to his closet and dressing area. We’ve been working on it two months or so now and have a very long way to go. I hope to get pictures after all is installed and done on both area’s. Will post them if I do.

Thanks for looking and have fun woodworking!

Absolutely Stunning Les. What a fabulous design, futuristic and elegant at the same time.
Can’t say enough good things about it or the genius that made it.

That is truly a fantastic design. Wonderful build. I’ll bet those curves were fun.

I love the detail on the drawers! Does the cylindrical part start spinning and leave the earth’s gravitational field? Wow, wow, wow!

Les,

This is incredible! Does it include a computer system that locates the specific piece of jewelry and opens the appropriate drawer, too? Or with that much jewelry, maybe she has a full-time jeweler to catalog and polish it all! ;-) No one is going to just run off with her jewelry box! It’s really a gorgeous piece of furniture as well as clever and functional.

Your work never ceases to amaze us! We surely hope you can post a finished picture as well.
