Mother’s day coming up quickly. I do not have the money this year to get my wife something nice, so I made her this.
This jewelry cabinet is made entirely of oak. It is sixteen inches wide, twenty four inches tall and twelve inches deep. Once I had it built, I realized something else. It is heavy. It is finished with Minwax Gloss Polyurethane.
As you can see, it has six drawers. The drawers slide on wooden slides. The two sides open to expose ten hooks on each side to hang things such as necklaces and bracelets on.
If you’ like to see the build of this cabinet, I did blog about it. You can see it at the following links.
If you notice all the box joints in this project, I cut all those using a shop built design I recently built. You can see more about it here.
As for the design of this project, I can’t take credit for it. Every design idea I had while building it were things i’d seen on other jewelry boxes here and there. However, I did not use any plans to build it. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even write anything down from start to finish. I just sort of made it up as I went along. I made for a fun build.
