This incredibly imposing antique cabinet is not the norm for us to offer here at Old Plank, however, there was just something about the scale and the oversize proportions that drew our attention. The more we looked at the antique armoire or bookcase, the more we became intrigued with all the finely carved details. Judging by the original lock mechanism and construction methods used, we believe it was built in the early 1800’s, which would make it around 200-years-old. The original dark finish was rather drab, so we did lime the oak and that allowed you to see the high level of workmanship that into building this unique antique armoire, without the use of any power tools. The restoration and finishing required well over 160-hours of labor and a lot of patience, but we think it was well worthwhile.
