A jewelry cabinet in walnut and spalted beech on oak / cocobolo stand.

The drawers are shaped and reminded me of ribs so the sandblasted mirror was added to conceal the watch winders at the top.

Well it’s a bit of fun!

I dig it! The continuous grain across the drawers is really cool.

awesome, my favorite part is actually the outer door handle, i like how its one piece sliced in two.

how do the drawers open? do you just kinda get a knuckle in there and pull?

Yes I saw the idea of the handle on another project (ant remember where now) it is great fun to play with these sorts of ideas as you can make them up before committing to adding them to the final piece.

With the drawers you use your fingers in the slots. It sort of works. Makes you think a bit about the cabinet as you use it rather than taking it all for granted.

I will see if i can find some more pics. There are some at
