A few years ago I bought and old run down Hoosier Cabinet at a garage sale. Most of the wood was rotten, but I was able to salvage the metal top and the flour sifter, which was the reason I bought it to begin with. The metal top has a date of 1942 stamped on the bottom. I gingerly disassembled the cabinet and used the individual pieces as a pattern for the most of the new pieces. The new cabinet is made of pine, plywood, and the doors are MDF, so we will see how those hold up. My wife was kind enough to paint it and now we have a fully functional hoosier cabinet. fyi….I do not plan to sift any flour. Thanks for looking!!!
