Its about 34” tall and 25” wide and 5” deep.
Heavy. Looks like old yellow pine, but I’m not an expert, the grain looks like that of the pine floors in my 1906 colonial. Probably from the 1940s or 50s

yes, I am selling it, but want it to go to someone who would appreciate it.

But, I can’t reach my target audience.

I think my target audience is someone starting a fraternal organization about 40 years ago or a summer camp director. LOL.

I would approach veterans and lodges – vfw, elks etc. at least that’s what I think might work – can the titles and letters be changed?

If so it opens up a bunch of alternatives – boy/girl scouts etc

-- They said I could be anything... So I became Sarcastic! They also said making drawers is easy... I think they lied :(

I’d be surprised if it were pine.

Take a look at the pics and let me know what you think. They are on ebay.
I’m basing my guess on the grain on the triangle piece on top. See the ebay pics.
I know old growth pine can be as hard as maple from my dealings with it on my old home. http://r.ebay.com/YcEUhs

Have your say...
