Just finished this jewelry armoire that a friend ask me to design and build (with his help)as a gift for his Daughter. It is made with a combo of hard maple,maple ply and purpleheart inlay and accents. The drawers are built with poplar and use mechanical slides. The pulls are custom made and mortised into the doors and drawer fronts along with the inlay work. We lined the interior with black velvet and misc. jewelry trays. Because of time constraints we opted for table legs bought online. The finish is a simple 3 part BLO/urethane/MS mixture rubbed on by hand and then polished to a natural sheen. Thanks for taken a look!

I apologize for the sideways pics, couldn’t figure out how to turn them. !

My neck hurts! But I’m sure the piece looks great (if oriented the proper way).

Nice looking piece—just needs to be rotated 90 degrees clockwise.

Thanks fellos and I did try to rotate the pics on the iPad but with no luck, sorry for the neck pain! If any of the tech wizards would like to chime in it won’t hurt my feelings any !

iPads orient their cameras in landscape mode. So if you take them (with the iPad vertical) then the picture will be sideways – so you have to take pics with iPad holding the iPad horizontal. (its the same with iPhones) Two ways to fix it – take pictures with iPad horizontal (landscape) or rotate the pics on the computer and save it as a different file. :)

I won’t heckle you about the pics like the last two – great job on the jewelry case! Looks awesome

@ dakremer Figured that was going to be the reason but I thought it would allow rotation thru edit! Anyways thanks for the education and I will try your suggestions. Also thanks for the compliments and taking the time to help the technically challenged !

Great job! Lots of hard work there. It looks even better when I’m laying down!

Man, I sure wish I could build like this. Someday…
