There is a trick shelf that pops out when pushed on.  This is intended as a layout shelf for selecting jewlery from the drawers. 

 

The Shields Jewelry Armoire is made of Curly Maple from New Hampshire, and Butternut that was salvaged from an old Vermont church door. The hardware is nickel plated brass. The bureau is finished with a mixture of boiled linseed oil, many coats of shellac and paste wax.

Photos of the build can be found here.
