We found this cabinet on craigslist and loved the carvings. When I saw it person though, it was in pretty bad shape. The joints were all loose and the panels in the panel and frame construction had all shrunk so much that there were gaps. And the finish was also in bad shape. I almost didn’t buy it, but the carvings put me over the edge.
What to do the fix it up? First, I thought I would just replace the panels, but decided it might be too difficult to match the wood. So finally, I ended up taking it completely apart and cutting the frame to fit the existing panels. And I stripped and re-finished it. A much bigger job than I bargained for.
Here’s the result.
