I made this Lingerie/Jewelry chest last fall as a Christmas present for my wife, it started out as a Lingerie chest then I decided to make room for concealed jewelry tray in place of the seventh drawer. The top lid of the chest lifts opens to reveal the removable jewelry tray. I used Torsion Hinge Lid Supports from Rockler for the top so the lid stays open at any angle, then mortised the hinges to allow the top to set flush on the chest when closed.
The wood is rift sawn red oak finished with Minwax Early American stain then a few coats of an oil and poly mix
