I found this cabinet at a shop here in my town. I fell in love with it and bought it.( I hope i got a decent deal on it). It is a Huge piece of furniture approx. 7 1/2 high, and 6ft long. Made of oak, it has 32 cubby holes at top, 6 larger drawers, and 2 large doors at the bottom. I really don't know what it is. I have been told a Post Office desk, Railroad desk, even a dental desk. I have been trying to research it to find out what it was used for. It is a great conversational piece in my house.

    I don't blame you for snapping it up, I would have, if I saw it first. That's one interesting piece of furniture.
    Congrats on a nice pick.

    I love it..whatever it is!! I think it's an old Post Office piece by the way the drawers lean out. I could store lots of art and craft material in that!!

    I was about to say, mail room or an old filing cabinet of some kind. Maybe for medical records. Very cool!
