condition: excellent
Wood is maple with some 'curly maple' parts. Locally made by famous woodworker in Asheville (now deceased ~ although his shop is still here and his apprentice now runs it). Most likely special order with that unusual 'top piece' (I believe he only did special orders). Large and heavy. Solid wood but original paint peeling (but scrapes off with my fingernail!) Must be old! Other than that, excellent. Comes off extremely easily with ordinary hand tools or even a kitchen scrub? (I used a one edge razor lightly on the top but any buffer item would work?) The name of the maker is 'burnt' into the wood. This was his signature branding. Extremely heavy piece of solid wood. Let me know if you need precise measurements. There is only one coat of whatever was on there originally and it is peeling very easily and would just need hand work (scrapes off very easily) to get it off (rather than chemicals or sanders, etc). The wood has beautiful lines of curly maple running through it in spots.
