Jewelry Cabinet

Here’s a small jewelry cabinet I built for my daughter…...minus the hangers. It’s been a long time in the making, and utilizes poplar and hardboard. I learned something with this one…..paint thickness counts. When everything was ready to reassemble, nothing fit due to the paint. All and all I’m not overly happy, but my daughter (she’s 4) thinks it’s great….that’s all that really counts.
Thanks for looking.

You did a fine job. I bet your daughter thinks you can hang the moon. Good times.

You did good. If she’s only 4, you have many years ahead in which to build for her. And she’ll love it all.

Congratulations on making everything so tight that paint matters.

Usually we are using paint to fill in the gaps.

Great job.

I must agree with Karson about the paint. Nice design though. I hope she doesn’t fill it up to soon since she is only 4.

Nice job
I know I’ve used 1/8” paint before
