I have been thinking of making the wife a jewelry box for some time now, so I thought no better time than the present. I had hoped to make one that had plenty of room to grow. Well. by the looks of it, I made it too small. Thank God that she only buys the cheap stuff.

Hanging cabinet is great idea. Little room left on horizontal dresser tops so use vertical wall space… well done… and I’m sure the mirror is appreciated too.

Nice work, a jewelry box can never be big enough,,, LOL Can your wife teach Blondie to only buy the cheap stuff please. Kidding, its my fault as I buy it for her. But then that doesn’t sound as good when asking for help.
What kind of wood did you use?

Thanks for the kind words. It is mostly Walnut. The door frames are (I think Tulip?) but not sure. I also made it so it can be taken apart. The only glue and biscuits are in the box frame only. It was oiled and waxed. I think it gives it an antique look.
