A writer from Montross has inquired about this cabinet, which she references as a “doughbox.”  It has been in her family for a number of generations.  She brought it with her from Iowa when she moved to the Northern Neck five years ago, but she notes that her family has roots in Ohio, New York and Virginia.  Some of the blanking comes from a single board, and she thinks the nails are handmade.
