This curly maple hunt board is a piece that might be found in an 18th century home in the area where I work: Hertford County in NE North Carolina. The wood was finished with boiled linseed oil (dried for 2 weeks) and 5 coats of shellac. The draws are cock-beaded and there’s a cock bead along the bottom of the case.
Apologies for the poor photo quality. I must spend the time and get better pictures (one of these days).
Thanks for looking,
