Final pics of my “dog food cabinet”. (It will actually house our flour, sugar, and olive oil as well) 😁
It is mostly period correct to Louis XV - Louis XVI transition. The joinery
is solid wood with 18th C joinery and the marquetry and parquetry are original designs from the work of Jean Francois Oeben and Jean Henri Riesener.
The glue is all animal protein (hide glue) and the only metal parts are the pulls, hinges, catches and their fastenings …. and one screw that holds the sliding back in place.
The top is Vancouver Island “Black Carmanah” marble.
Almost all surfaces, inside and out are veneered.
