I am new to lumberjocks , but I have read post while browsing the internet. I have a customer that wants me to design and build a lockable jewelry cabinet inside her closet. I have a few ideas and would like to bounce them off of some experience. My idea was to have drawers that hold the jewelry, but the drawers would hang vertically. They would slide in and out to see the jewelry. I have about 70” in height and about 16” in width and 20” in depth. There also has to be a space above for prescription drugs. The only reason I have a limited height to work with is that my customer is vertically challenged (short), and that is the limit of her reach. She was concerned about lighting to see the jewelry clearly, so I suggested LED lights mounted on the drawers that came on when the door is opened. She is not convinced, not seeing my vision I guess . This will be my first time fabricating a drawer in this configuration and I am not sure what type of joint to use for the drawer box. I am also limited to type due lack of equipment and knowledge.
If there is anyone that could help me in my adventure, I would like to have some knowledge to bounce ideas off of and maybe even a entire new plan. Any assistance would help.

Has the customer any idea or seen anything like what she wants?

I did something like this for a customer to store Guns, where I built a false wall with Soss hinges and electrically activated latch and touch latches allowing the wall to swing open. Inside there were drawers for ammunition, guns, and such, but with lighting from above which turned on when the wall opened.

Sounds like they need a conceled safe if they have that much jewelry.
