Large Jewelry Armoire I built for my wife. She had a similar one we bought years ago that was made of painted pine and did not match the rest of the oak bedroom furniture I had built. I used that one as a go-by for basic design and size and then modified it according to my wifes wishes.

It is a little over 6 ft tall and rotates on the base. A full length mirror on the back and smaller mirror inside the doors. 11 drawers that have dividers in them and are all flocked (my wife gets credit for the flocking).

It is a real beaut. I really like the idea of having it rotate. Welcome to the jocks.

It is a lazy susan bearing, 12 inch I think. It rotates pretty easy even though it weighs a lot.

Big, big mistake… who buys all the jewelry that will fill it?

Otherwise, great work… design, build, finish… it has it all. Well done. But, I can’t be letting certain women in household look at it…

This is awesome!
Great idea with the swiveling base and the mirrors- really nice finish on the whole project.
Nicely done, I’m sure she’ll love it.

Nice work. Really like the mirror on the back side. Sorry but I hope my wife does not see this or I know what she will be wanting me to build next.

Looks great! That much jewelry storage probably needs a vault! My favorite part is the proportions and even and balanced distribution of the drawers.
Keep up the good work.
I really like the coffee table you posted too.
