This piece continues on our New Wave Gothic series – adding a server to the lineup.
The unit is entirely solid walnut – no plywood to be found. Mortis and tenon construction throughout, ship lapped bottom back, and center shelf. Even the drawer bottoms are solid walnut!
This sucker weights a ton … it may be as if not heaver than some of the big tables with all the wood that is in it.
Four simple drawers on wood slides, for main doors. The doors all feature the classic church panel fretwork that has become the most popular on our tables. The top actually lifts to provide storage space for large silver or other valuables. The hidden compartment makes a nice feature on the piece.
We offer custom configurations of Gothic servers, hutches, side tables, dining tables, corner units, armories, etc. Just about any piece of furniture can be converted into a medieval, Renaissance, Tudor, or Gothic theme.
Hardware is by Horton Brasses
Stain if I remember right is a dark walnut from the Mohawk penetrating line. Finish is hand cut shellac and Waterlox tung oil varnish.
