This was my first project I completed since setting up my shop. My tools have been in storage for the past six years and this was a nice project to get everything tuned back up.

You mention “Jewlery Cabinet” in your post. I have been wanting to build one of these for a while, any chance you have plans?

This looks suspiciously like a vanity mirror but my wife saw one that opened up to store jewelry. Is this what you’ve made? If it is, can you post some more pictures of it opened up?

Thanks for the comments. yes it does open up. On the inside it has pegs at the top to hold necklaces, and then 4 shelves to hold whatever. I will try to post pics in the next day or so. It was a present and the person i gave it to is about 3 hours away. I do have plans if you want to contact me.

Secondly that is a great idea and design. I love how it is a cheval mirror but doubling up as a jewelry box.
You did a great job

I really like your project here, and this might be a good alternative project to the jewelry box I told my wife she may get for her birthday (she also wants a better, full length mirror, so this could be even better). There area few things I can’t decipher though – is there a ‘locking mechanism’ to hold the mirror at an angle if a person tilts it?
