Vintage oak cabinet in studio corner: postal label cabinet
Vintage oak cabinet in studio corner:  postal label cabinet
One of my favorite pieces in my studio. I found this at the wonderful Lakewood Fairgrounds antiques market. These look like drawers, but aren't. The cabinet doors hide small shelves -- the doors lift and slide back into the cabinet. I'm using it to store trays of rubber stamps. UPDATE: Just learned that this piece was a cabinet is a postal label cabinet. This is the caption beside a photo of an identical cabinet on the web site: "This oak label cabinet is an example of the high quality demanded by the post office. Much of the furniture on display is made of oak because of the durability of the wood. Instead of the drawers pulling out as one would expect, the drawers in this cabinet roll up to reveal the contents."
