When a friend asked if I could restore his antique wardrobe I said “Sure, no problem.” When he brought it to me I nearly fainted. This thing had been stored in a barn for many years, most of the glue joints had come apart, some of the sides and doors had broken stiles and as I tried to put it back together I discovered the drawers, part of the base and parts of the crown molding were missing. My shop was once a horse barn so I used some of the oak lining the stalls to replace the missing pieces, it turned out to be an almost perfect match to the original. After lots of sanding and many coats of shellac I think it looks pretty good.
