Built this one for the sister-in-law after she fell in love with the larger one I made for the wife. This one consists of an old door (sides), antique flooring (top) and 100 some year old shutters. I take the shutters apart for cleaning and light sanding. I try to save the original paint and patina as best I can. Then I glue them back together, stronger and truer than they were. Sister-in-law refinished this one. Here’s a hint…don’t poly the cabinet or doors. Makes them too shiney. Her mistake…she admits it.
