This is my second cabinet restoration what i have finished now.It´s from 1850 and it is a Louis-Philippe-Style. I found it in an Garage, where it stands for the last 50 years. It was in an really bad shape, almost the complete ornamentation was lost and the worm had done a big damage. The legs where completly rotten and the glas was totally scratched. The middle plate was warped and broken. I striped it down to the base and replaced a few boards. I have also stabilized a few wormy parts with epoxy. After sanding, I veneered the body with oak and replaced all of the ornamentation and the middle plate with solid oak. The door inlays, drawers and the top board are burled oak. After another sanding, i stained it in dark oak and the finish is polished shellac. For the glas i found mouthblown flat glas, with a light structure and a few small bubbles in it. So i could replace the old and scratched ones. Now is waiting a third one in my shop, which is about from 1890 but it must wait, because i have bought a tablesaw from the 60´s which i want first to restore.
