This was a restoration project that I acquired when I was helping one of the local elementary school teachers move out of her house she had this old filing cabinet in really poor condition, and I asked if I could take it off of her hands. Upon restoring it I found a patent date of 1902 stamped on one of the support boards under the top piece. I put new veneer on the top that resembled the original rift sawn oak and oiled the cabinet with provincial Danish oil, along with 5 coats of Bartley’s hand rubbed varnish and a coat of paste wax.
