Craftsman Jewelry Armoire Wide

This is a widened version of the craftsman jewelry armoire also listed in my shop. The design of this cabinet is my own, but pulls heavily from the style of charles limbert, greene & greene, and gustav stickley. The thick square legs for corners mimic much of the work of stickley and limbert, as does the solid top with exposed end-grain.

The lack of a dividing rail between each drawer is where my work separates from traditional arts and crafts design. This allows for taller drawers and more storage from the same exterior size of the cabinet. The entire cabinet is constructed of solid hardwood of your choosing. Woods available are white oak, walnut (shown), cherry, and hard maple. The only part that is not hardwood are the drawer bottoms, which are 1/4 hardboard.

All joints of the case are mortise and tenon. Drawers are assembled using a drawer lock joint; an unassuming method that offers simple and efficient construction without compromising strength. Full extension drawer slides are used, but i can substitute hardwood slides if you prefer a completely traditional look and feel. The interior of the drawers are lined with black felt. The drawer sides and backs are constructed of poplar.

The side cabinets enclose rows of hooks for necklaces, and have frame and panel doors with magnetic catches. All interior and exterior surfaces are treated with stain (if applicable) and coated with danish oil. Between two and four coats of shellac are sprayed on for topcoat and polished to a satin sheen. The example shown was a custom order with drawer dividers in only three drawers. They can be added to other drawers in whatever type, number and combination you like. It doesn't take me too long to prepare a design and quote for a custom sized armoire. This item is made of poplar and walnut.
