Antique Flame Mahogany Sideboard, Circa 1820's

New 1/2 mortise locks and keyhole escutcheons are fitted.
Adding new veneer to the door fronts.

Making sure all joints and frame are square.

The bottom, back and interior frame work has to be reworked.

The drawers are in good missing veneer.

The doors have been cleaned to show the flame pattern of the mahogany

This 1820-40 piece has a gun shot wound from a Civil War bullet. It is our chance now to restore this piece to its real beauty.
