This Hepplewhite-style corner cabinet belongs to a family originally from Fairfax County. The wood is mahogany with satinwood inlay and pine as secondary wood. The owner’s grandfather had the piece built in Alexandria over 100 years ago. All of the wood is solid, with no modern plywood backing, and the doors have independent panes of glass.
