Do the doors close flush to the sides , or is there room and hooks to hang necklaces on from inside. What does it look like with the doors fully opened and how wide is it at that point ? I would think that a box that is this big would have its own base to stand on , like the beautiful piece of furniture that it is : ) Great job overall and I’m sure that your daughter will be happy with it !

Yes there is plenty of room for hanging necklaces inside the doors.The other box I made the doors do not overlap the front.They are much smaller and close on the side with the drawers showing when the doors are closed.I will post pictures of the other box tomorrow.Thanks for all the compliments

Beautiful job of organizing the grains and the joint work looks really tight. Fine piece. Can’t let my wife see this. :^?

It looks beautiful, but I’m not sure how the doors work.
