Lynda's Cabinet

Thank you for your patience in following along with this build. It was a more than a pleasure over the weekend to deliver this jewelry cabinet to its new owners, they will always hold a special place in Haley and I's heart. During the past year the cabinet was not the only piece of furniture that passed through the doors of my shop, but as far as a single piece, it gladly took most of my time and thought. The exterior is constructed of instrument grade Koa sitting on a Wenge base, while the interior consists of Boxwood drawer fronts, Sycamore drawer sides, Port Orford Cedar drawer bottoms and a Mediterranean Olive hidden box.


I spent some time deciding a method to lock the cabinet. Ordering multiple mechanisms and not being satisfied, I decided on making my own. It was very simple, a steel rod enclosed in brass, that will drop down when not being held up with the below pictured, magnetic wooden key.

Once again, what a joy it was to make this cabinet and thanks for following along.



Good night.
