1800’s Cupboard gets a facelift

Here’s an early 1800’s cupboard made from solid walnut.  Walnut is a very traditional, very ‘American’ wood and this cupboard wears it quite nicely.  This piece was missing a door and needed to be completely restored.  It had little original finish to preserve and needed some significant repairs.  One of the most challenging tasks of this job was to cut two pieces of molding for the top.  The piece had lost its two upper-side moldings so we cut two brand new ones and colored them to match the patina that only aged wood will display.  Additionally, a door was crafted to install in place of the missing one.
