My daughter found this abandoned sideboard at the curbside during rubbish pick up.

Now since it’s been refinished and repaired it graces her bedroom in their condo in Aruba.

Thanks for your interest and comment.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your generous comment.

When I first restored it, I chased through Google trying to find something like it.

I only found a sideboard on Martha Stewarts blog that looked a bit like it, but on a smaller scale.

Would have loved to seen an original straight from manufacturers.

Yes, there are many tools I ‘d like to acquire but I try to exercize self-control. It aint easy!
Had a lot of fun restoring this one. Duplicating the missing door was a challenge with the router and other
hand tools.

Thanks for your note.

Have a great day.
