This took a while. The top was worked on both ends. The bottom was rotten out. Drawers falling apart. Missing 5 drawers and a dozen pulls. So total redo but keeping the old look. Flat nail heads, scratches and gouges. We added a few coats of Man-O-War.
Customer is !!! Marks happy.

I had a chance to buy one of those about 20 years ago. A hardware store in a little town east of me went out of business and they were selling everything The old man who owned the store wanted $200 for the unit including all the hardware it contained.

I couldn't figure out how I was going to get it home and I didn't have $200 to spend. He wouldn't take less. It wouldn't have mattered if he would have taken less, I still didn't have a way to get it home.

Dave, your work is really special. I enjoy seeing people with skills and brother, you have skills.

That is awesome. So were the top drawers pie shaped? I could see that going along nicely with my wife's GG-Grandfather's hardware cabinet. I'll have to keep my eye out for one or consider building one some day.
