very attractive and well designed cabinet work, not to mention your custom made pulls. Very impressive.

First and foremost, they’re stunning. One suggestion: put a brass slotted screw in place of the phillips. It fit with the period look of the piece so much better…

Again, beautiful work!

Smitty- A fine suggestion…I’ll see if I can replace the screw before this piece ships out!—-

There is SO much to love about these fine cabinets! Workmanship, design and attention to detail. The inlay, those pulls, the sweep of the legs. Bravo.
