I have redesigned this in my head a few times before it came to its current form. This took me about 5 years to finally get around too as well. My wife asked me to build it and I am getting now to where I could. Has two doors into the cabinet with one drawer and hooks to hand necklaces or earrings. Haven’t lined the drawer but it will have felt lining. The knobs i turned on the lathe a while back. Legs are tapered a first for me. All the joinery is simple. Mortise and tenon joinery on the base. the cabinet has rabbets and a shelf dadoed in. Used Oak for most of the cabinet and maple for the doors. Next cabinet I build I will try rail and style. Still have issues putting hinges on. I added more hand tool use to this project cutting tenons and rabbets by hand. planed the material down after the wood had been warped sitting all these years in my shop. Used my hand drill as much as I could. Cabinet is finished with BLO and wax. Which turned out great. I like using oil and wax over anything.

Looks to me like you made a fine go at it Joe. A lot of folks don’t realize how many complicated aspects go into projects like this. I too have had my bouts with hinges and still don’t think i am where I need to be. Keep at it…. Thanks for sharing!

Glued blocks then screws up through bottom of cabinet overbuilt for wood movement even though it probably won’t move that much
