This project started when my home computer crashed. My computer repair specialist spent many hours trying to figure out what the heck happened to it. She then mentioned that her oldest daughter had some previous bad luck with purchased jewelry cases and asked me if I would build one for her. DING! DING! DING! Horse trading time! So I said yes if she would accept it as payment. It was a good trade for both of us.

The armoire is made from cherry and spalted cherry. The drawers are made from curly maple and they are covered with red felt. There are two carrosels which will hold 6 chains each. The finish is several coats of laquer.

This has been my most complicated build yet...about 50 parts and new jointery. It was fun and a big learning curve.

By the way, the reciepient was Dixie Lee Nicholds, the daughter of Guy and Cassandra...Vic

Vic, Sorry I didn't post up sooner but you saw what I'm dealing with next door and it hasn't stopped yet either. Shame on 'em if they hurt one of my girls! I think that is one of the nicest pieces you've EVER made and Dixie Lee is just glowing in the dark over it! Guess I can take the nightlite out of her room now and save a little $$$$ on electricity;) LOL. She already has it filled up with her little neclaces and whatnots (with the doors open of course;) ). Your a good man Amigo and I'll not forget what you did for my baby girl either! My bride is so impressed that she worked on your cmputer until she fell smooth asleep! Ya done good Amigo. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts! Your Friends, The Nichols'
