Art Deco Jewelry Armoire


I finally completed the lower section to this jewelry armoire. I still have a long way to go, making the upper section with a ton of details. I'm making this one in my home shop on my off hours which can really slow down the process. For the legs I purchased a large piece of dark Macassar Ebony 2 3/4" think x 10" wide x 12'-0" long and cut up every bit of it to glue up the legs. So far it's been a fun challenge.

you dont come on here a lot dennis but when you do it's in style.  amazing work as usual.

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.

As usual Dennis, a truly amazing detailed OTT piece of work! 
Love those legs!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

WOW, that is a marvelous creation. I'm highly impressed with all the jointery, which is all very tight and without any gaps. I can't imagine the time and effort to get all those glue joints that tight, but both time and effort are well worth the investment.   👍👍
I can't find a word to describe your talents. Thanks for sharing your work.

Top notch work Dennis. How did you do the white stringing on the post? What woods did you use for the black and white, that work so well?

I like your drawing too. Hand drawn?
This is a really exquisite design, everything looks so crisp. I imagine this is very precise and time consuming work. I'm curious about the leg glue up too, the attention to detail is amazing, how the holly meets in the middle at the top of the legs is just one of those details that make this piece exude quality.

Doing the best I can with what I've got

Thank you very much, TheWoodGuy, Renners, The woods are black Macassar Ebony & Holly, the holly is 1/16" thick veneer all glue together. When I get some time I will do a blog on my steps. I really appreciate the very kind complements!
