Vintage French Louis XVI style commode or chest that our internal Old Plank restoration department completely went through the French commode from the inside out. The old finish was carefully hand scraped and sanded off, without the use of any chemical and an old school ebony finish was applied, using layers of different color stains. The grain of the mahogany still shows through as do highlights of the brown of the wood. The dove-tailed drawer bottoms, are made from thick white oak and not your typical paper-thin plywood. Nicely constructed and beautifully restored.
