This is a beautifully restored and refinished Shaker-style dry sink dating from at least the late 1800s. I found this piece on the street, destined for the trash. It needed the original finished stripped and some screws tightened down, but other than that, was in fine shape for its exceptional age. While I cannot verify this to be a true Shaker piece, it bears many of the marks of that style:
- simple and elegant design
- round button knobs (the bottom two I had to recreate on my own)
- square-cut, handmade nails
- handmade dovetails on both the front AND backs of all drawers (mark of a true craftsman)
- hand-cut mortise and tenon joinery
- two-foot wide solid walnut shelving - quite hard to find these days!
The original shellac finish was in bad condition, so it was gently removed and replaced with a durable oil and polyurethane mix for a long-lasting, warm appearance that's sure to be a centerpiece of any living room or other room in the house. A cleat was added to the lower shelf, which had warped upward, in order to make it flat again.
Thanks again for looking.
