Linen Press

This piece is a near copy of a 1780's linen press at MESDA in Salem, NC. It doubles as a media cupboard so I used full height doors on the lower case. A drawer hides behind the doors and contains CDs. The upper part houses the TV and DVD player behind the tombstone doors, the lower a stereo and speakers.

I used dovetailed bracket feet rather than the original's ogee bracket feet. The feet support a plinth on which the case rests. The finish is aged milk paint, red over black followed by a darkened oil topcoat.

The Rat tail hinges are by Fisher Forge, the escutcheons by Ball and Ball , milk paint by The Real Milk Paint co
