A super neat piece! I found it from an art dealer who worked out of the building where the Manhattan project was housed. So, true confession, I didn’t actually build this – I restored it during my first year of Columbia – rebuilt the drawers and applied a new finish. Wow, refinishing furniture in a NYC apartment is a fast way to be unpopular. Spilling a liter of stain will do that too. I think the unique thing about this piece, is the wood veneer running up and down, rather than side to side. It is so unique it just pops.
