Arts & Crafts Side Cabinet.

We have quite a few nice pieces of arts and crafts style oak furniture at the moment, I might get them all together for a photo sometime. In the meantime here is a useful little oak side cabinet / bookcase that is new in today. With leaded glass doors and original arts and crafts style hinges the only decoration on an otherwise very simple but well made piece of furniture. The values of the original arts and crafts movement are reflected in the solid oak construction, the attention given to the wooden caps on the side and exposed dovetails on the top.
