This small jewelry cabinet is built almost entirely from Western Red Cedar. (I used oak for the interior elements and a plywood back for strength.) It measures 15" high, about 13" wide and 2.5" deep. The doors are true frame and panel construction with book-matched panels, hung on brass hinges and held closed with small rare-earth magnets. The door knobs are hand-turned on a miniature lathe. To add character, I try to create different style knobs for all my cabinets, so each is unique. For contrast, the top and bottom of this cabinet is accented with light colored swamp ash, a type of lumber more commonly used in the production of handmade guitars. Inside, there are 48 earring hangers, twelve hooks for necklaces and a tray on the bottom shelf for rings and small items. The cabinet is finished with a satin varnish to protect the wood and bring out the natural figure of the cedar. The cabinet can be hung on a wall (anchors and screws are included), but it also works well as a free standing unit and could be placed on a dresser or nightstand.
