I have an acquaintance who has asked if I can make her a jewelry box/cabinet for her earrings (over 100 pair). I’ve been giving it a lot of thought and searching the web and haven’t come up with very much. I do like the one shown on this site but don’t know that I can figure out a mounting system that will allow the leaves to move from side-t0-side. I emailed the site owner but he really didn’t want to reveal much about how it was set up except that he did mention multiple magnets used as stops.
I thought that something similar to this one with a couple of drawers and perhaps four shorter leaves above the drawers but without some hardware/system to pull the leaves out and be able to rotate them, I’m kind of at a loss.

Has anyone ever designed/built an earring cabinet or seen one? Any ideas or thoughts on designing such a critter?

Jim, Here is one posted by Devianthus that I have been considering. It may be something that you would have an interest in.

When I built the two jewelry cabinets in my project pictures, I just purchased earing inserts that fit in the drawers. That seems to work fine. They come in different colors too. I purchased mine at Rockler.
