Make it in March21 - Oak Jewellery cabinet

Oak Jewellery Cabinet - This is made from reclaimed rough sawn off cuts of oak and pine from my local timber yard.

This piece is my first attempt at cabinets and is for my sister who sent a photo of a similar cabinet style as a guide but wanted 8 drawers in a specific size to fit her existing ring trays.

I have planned and thickened all the timber, then used mitre joints for the base and top of the cabinet, and mortise and tenon joints. The legs I cut free hand on the bandsaw and used my Shaper origin to cut the SOSS invisible hinges that were aswell.

The top of the cabinet has a hidden drawer the lid has a mirror I found in the street ready for the refuse.

I have inlaid (i think that the term) a piece of oak into the top of the cabinet.

I didn’t use plans just using the dimensions of the drawers to start if off and went from there.

The Pine frame is biscuit jointed together to make the width and I spray painted this white and the oak is finished with Danish oil with a final beeswax polish.
