Jewelry cabinet

It's way to big to be referred to as a jewelry box.

I spent today with a can of 3M spray adhesive, a yard of red felt and about a dozen razor blades. Building the dividers on the table saw with 1/4" hardboard was easy....glueing all that felt into all those corners was a time-consuming excercise!

The inside of the lid will have a mirror which we're waiting for, and I'm also waiting for some antique brass chain match the knobs and hinges, but the yellow brass was all I could find to get the project completed, so it's a matter of two screws when the antique arrives. It's done and she loves it.

At any rate, Mrs. Smith is now in the bedroom, moving in all her trinkets! And I've got the livingroom, the big TV and the DVR all to myself. I'm going to go watch last week's NYW and The Shield.

comments welcome

Very nice work. I can't imagine how long the felt installation must have taken.

Darn nice, Smitty! I especially like the color. And, the drawers are fantastic!

You must have a lot of jewelry!

Smitty I gotta say that looks great! Very nice work.

It seems like a very fair trade to me also. Mrs Smitty gets this beautiful jewelry cabinet and you got a new shop with a floor full of Grizzly!!

Fair and equitable is what we woodworkers are all about!!!

Seriously I'll bet she is a very happy woman. Does she have your next project lined up yet?

Smitty,
Nice job, nice job. You obviously understand the 'keep the wifey poo happy' theorum. For every five projects you make for yourself, make one for her. For every five new tools you buy for the shop, make her a project.

Great job. Is it your design? I know how tedious felt can be. Next time, try some flocking. It is a lot easier than felt and great results are possible even from a beginner. Only a suggestion.
Truly nice work!

Hey Smitty,
I just thought about something. That's an awful BIG jewlery box. Hope she doesn't plan on filling the whole thing up.
