Walnut File Cabinet
This four drawer file cabinet was painstakingly hand crafted in England by a third generation furniture craftsman. His attention to detail is remarkable. For example the finish on this walnut file cabinet is a seven stage, hand rubbed finish. Before finishing the burled walnut is hand distressed using stone and metal to give it a more antique feel. The hand rubbed finish is completed with coats of wax which gives the wood a warm feel and is not too glossy. English made, solid brass pulls and locks adorn each drawer. The top of this walnut file cabinet is covered in a brown leather that was hand embossed and gold tooled around the edges. The brown leather provides a nice texture contrast to the wood. Finally the entire walnut file cabinet sits on four ogee bracket feet which break up the lines of the cabinet and keep it from looking too square. Both sides are decorated with square beading instead of being just plain.
Since the four file drawers in this cabinet are quite large and will eventually house rows of heavy files, the drawers were put on metal runners. These metal runners allow the heavy drawers to open and close smoothly and easily. Each drawer locks and keys are included. Inside the drawers are adjustable hanging file systems that are designed to fit either letter or legal size hanging files. They are already installed, no installation is required by you!
This walnut file cabinet is a wonderful and well built piece of furniture that will last for generations. The care and skill that went into its creation has made it a real heirloom piece!
