Based on a picture of a tea cabinet. Frame is a grey looking walnut, and the inside is the more common brown walnut, and the sides are veneered cherry on top of play wood. The drawer fronts are also veneered. Hand cut dovetails. Finish with 6-8 coats of shellac. The top is finished with automobile pumice compound and 2 coats of beeswax. Cabinet measures 32” by 30” high by 16” deep.
