The front of this floor-standing mirror opens to reveal storage compartments for jewelry, scarves, or other accessories. And the mirror tilts for the optimum viewing angle.
At first, glance this project appears to be an ordinary dressing mirror. Yes, it’s a little smaller than other mirrors in its category. But if you loosen the hand-made cherry knobs on the sides, you can position the mirror for a perfect view of your attire. That’s when you’ll notice that the front is actually a door. A door that opens to reveal a case that holds all of the accessories required for a night on the town. And when the evening is done, no more draping items on the mirror because they have no home. As for the construction, the mirrored door is a sturdy frame built with open mortise and tenon joinery (also known as a bridle joint). The case has splined miters and a back that’s rabbeted in the frame. The stand features graceful legs that are solidly joined to the feet. The thick feet are good looking and a strong foundation for the mirror.

Cherry Night Stand
This classic cherry cabinet is built with traditional joinery. It's an heirloom project that looks as good alongside a sofa as it does next to a bed.
Beadboard panels, applied moldings, and an "antique" finish give this casual dresser tons of character and charm.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
