There was a comment on the table on top of my bench. A buddy of mine saw it on the street for trash pickup in his neighborhood. It had been painted, someone attemted to strip it, got partway finnish and threw it out. Rich brought it to me, it had no drawers but i figured i could deal with it. I carefully stripped the remainder of the paint, gods but it took a while.It looked old so i went to the library to research it found out it’s a french provincail walnut bureau plat 200 some odd years old. Dam did i get excited. However this project is on hold i’m still triing to fine wood to match so i can remake the drawers.
