I made this Jewelry armoire for my daughter’s college graduation. It took about two years and 450 hours to complete. Materials used were solid cherry lumber and ¼ inch cherry veneered plywood. All of the hardware is brushed satin nickel. The cabinet consists of nine jewelry trays, one large drawer, two side wing doors (one with swing out perforated panels for earrings, and the other with twenty-seven necklace hooks). It has two chambers (one chamber contains 22 necklace hooks including 8 hooks on a necklace carousel and one chamber has a glass shelf for displaying mementoes). The top lifts up on two torsion hinges and has a framed mirror built inside. LED lighting accents the two chambers and the bottom display shelf and are turned on with a touch on/off switch mounted on the back. All trays and drawers are lined with black velvet. There are several concealed and hidden drawers and compartments within the armoire that can be accessed with special keys, tools and movable pins. All of the doors and the top have magnetic closures. The finish is a GF rosewood water base stain with a GF poly satin finish. This is the first of three jewelry armoires that I will be making as I have two more daughters that will be graduating from college in the future.
Time to Build: Over 300 Hours
"I have made several online orders from Rockler, and the customer service has been great. While I have not had an unreasonable number of complications, I have had a few. Each time the folks at Rockler were very quick to respond, easy to work with and resolved the issue in the best way imaginable. Many thanks! I will be a customer for many years to come." -
