It took me a few years of scouring building sites and "dumpsters" to find enough REAL TIMBER to build a good. strong, functionl and repairable chest of drawers for my wife. I hope this will still be around and valued long after I am put in a box.
I sincerely hope this cabinet is not devalued by people's ignorance and aesthetic expectations brought on by consumerisim making furniture of poor build quality and materials, but "looking a million dollars" just to reach the point of sale then falling apart just months later rather than using their discernment...(is there any of that left in this idiotic world these days?) to destinguish quality workmanship and materials when they see it.
