Jewelry Chest

Choosing the right hardware is important for any project, but particularly so for a fine project like the jewelry chest on page 34. The brass hinges (205539) came from Van Dyke's Restorers but that specific hinge has been discontinued. Rockler carries a very similar narrow cabinet hinge (32908). The brass knobs (01A01.10) used for the necklace hangers and the rare-earth magnets (99K31.01) were purchased from Lee Valley.

The bending plywood used to make the doors is also available from Lee Valley (03A10.04). And we purchased the adhesive-backed, curly maple veneer from VeneerSupplies.com.

To finish the jewelry chest, we simply wiped on a coat of General Finishes' Seal-a-Cell and followed up with two coats of sprayed lacquer.
