My wifes boss bought this cabinet at an auction sale of a local Catholic church for $25. It sat in his garage for months and I bugged him the entire time about buying it from him. He finally caved in and just gave it to me. I rebuit five of the drawer faces and built a wine rack where the Holy Mother statue once sat. The wood I believe is Butternut? I have no idea when it was originally built, but I found a newspaper clipping from 1942 inside. It makes a great kitchen cabinet! I threw the Factory cart project in here as well. I bought this at an auction a couple of years ago for $27. It was rough, and had plywood covering the top. It’s our sofa table now. Wood is maple and hickory. It weighs every bit of 300 Lbs maybe closer to 350. I had to assemble it in the living room.
