This cabinet was brought to me in 24 different pieces. I almost gave up on it untill I saw some of the incredible dovetail work hidden in the carcass work. I decided it deserved to be put back together, but I had to re-build some of the carcass, and that meant trying to replicate some of the great dovetail work that someone did over 100 years ago.
