This cabinet came with a Singer 401. I love it. It is a very well made cabinet. The drawers are dovetailed and it looks like it is real plywood underneath the veneer.
It was the proverbial plant stand in its former life and subsequently the finish was peeling in the familiar round shape. I think that likely a philodendron was sitting on this table.
I sanded the top and was contemplating refinishing the whole thing when common sense took hold. I have enough to do. I was worried that the colors would be off. When I sanded it, there was a light yellow stain underneath the finish. Some of it remains in the grain of the OAK veneer. Time is of the essence, however. We have company coming in a few weeks and I want this to go into the apartment. Oh, I must also mention that Steven is tired of me taking over his shop.
