I was watching PBS Antiques Road Show and heard a distinction that I had not heard before. A chest of drawers was called a “carpenter’s piece” as opposed to a “cabinet maker’s piece.” Their distinction was that the carpenter builds his drawers with nails where a cabinet maker would use dovetails. Interesting, irrelevant but interesting.
