About this Gallery
This Jewelry Armoire is another of my designs inspired by the Shakers. The usual jewelry armoire design includes a pair of doors that swing out to the sides. I deigned this armoire utilizing vertical drawers instead of the doors. It takes up less floor space, and I find it esthetically more pleasing. My clients liked the design and gave me the freedom and support that allowed me to invent the full extension & pivot mechanism that is essential for the drawers. I also received support from a great box maker and good friend, Jeff Neil, who gave advice regarding the design of the drawer interiors.
The Armoire was made using solid air dried Appalachian Black Cherry and Birdseye Maple. It measures 42"h x 27"w x 18"d.
