This corner cabinet is made and finished in a traditional style, with a yellow pine base wood, and then faux grained and hand painted. Every outside surface is hand-grained and/or painted to simulate (although not necessarily duplicate) the look of wood grain. It is an historic tradition, some of which is very realistic, and some of which is more artistic and interpretive. This piece follows the design of a similar piece from the mid-1800’s. I design and build these historic interpretations of traditional Mennonite furniture from the Vistual Delta region of Poland. All parts, including the brass hinges and door latch, were made in my shop.
