Thread: I am going nuts trying to find a decent plan

    I am going nuts trying to find a decent plan

    Looking for a small but nice jewelry cabinet plan with a flip up top, side doors for necklaces, and a few drawers. Every search takes me to Teds woodworking, Pinterest which leads nowhere, or something similar. Where can a guy find decent plans these days? I’ve even seen what look like plan views of this box, but I’ll be darned if I can locate it. Any help appreciated!

    Thanks Doug!
    That is bigger than I was thinking but I did consider buying that plan and modifying it because it has the functions I want. I really ought to learn how to get my thoughts into sketch up!

    Thanks for the reply Glenn! I did check through woodsmith’s site with no luck. Possibly you will find something I missed!

    Rockler has this: https://www.rockler.com/lingerie-and-jewelry-chest-plan . Seems similar to what you have in mind, but maybe too large.

    If you have a good idea of what you want, or can find a picture just draw your own. Lots of articles in old FWW issues about how to scale a drawing from a photograph.

    I'd make a sketch, then add rough dimensions so it fits where it needs to go or what is going to get put inside, then start adding detail and getting the proportions right. With a good basic drawing a detailed construction drawing is pretty easy if you need one to lay out joints etc. Most of the battle is getting the proportions to look right.

    No, I also failed. I’m sure I’ve seen one that’s very similar to that I will keep looking.

    This ​one from WoodSmith is pretty similar. It's in #197 (Nov 2011).
    It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

    Check out The Wood Whisperer Guild. Marc built a curved front version. It is also a series of videos showing the build as well as the plans. I've built a few.

    Thank you, I am fortunate enough to have paper copies of every issue. If I end up designing my own I will be referencing this one

    I am considering a CNC as the next big tool in my shop. This has me considering trying my hand at Fusion 360 or sketchup and having at it myself. Thank you for the response!
