Last entry was the door to this cabinet. Now I have the rest of the cabinet home to work on. The drawers are bullet proof, thick heavy wood dovetailed together. The body of the cabinet is a frame filled with raised panels. Sadly the panels are glued and pinned solid, hence, cracked. If there was ever an endorsement for floating panels, this is it.
|This cabinet from 10,000 Villages has not been able to adjust to the huge difference in humidity between it's place of origin, Malaysia and place of sale, Ontario.|
|cracks on left side, both panels.|
|the other side only has one panel that is cracked.|
The design of the piece is nice and the wood has great character, it just didn't make the trip without real suffering.
As the Mr. Huey said, it is a bit self serving, but the points he makes are good.
