Beautiful restoration. The case has a unique design any idea on the cabinets original builder?? Did you get a tatt out of the deal?

Darryl: the owner tells me it is an early 1900’s dental cabinet. It has a ton of interesting features. The swing-out on the left of the piece has individual trays that slide into each if the dadoes. The trays each perfectly hold 8 small metal syringes. The second drawer down in the center has two built in shelves with what look like egg holders cut into them. The tattooist says these were for holding various types of fillings. The whole thing locks down like Fort Knox too and it took me a long time to figure out how the mechanism works so I could get it working like it should. Neat piece.
Madbear: tat scheduled! huge beautiful backpiece from a true artist and a legend in his field!
