This cabinet features wonderful hand carved decoration and original glass.
Hand cut dovetails were used to hold the sides of drawers together, but also to join the structural members of case furniture.
Hand made screws and nails were relatively expensive and could rust and expand, sometimes cracking the wood they secured. Dovetails have great strength, holding pieces of wood in perfect alignment over long periods of time.
For thousands of years, a dovetail joint was created by a skilled cabinetmaker using small, precision saws and wood chisels.
Tiny angled saw cuts were followed by careful cutting by a sharpened chisel on both sides to avoid splintering.
