59 Inch Mistake?

Posted by marcetohare (My Page) on

Hi all, I just bought a large maple 56 inch wide armoire that I plan to repurpose into a potting bench. However, it has two features not normally seen in South Florida. First, it has two 59 inch long brass hinges. Second it has two wood stairstep looking things on each side that easily allow you to adjust the shelf height without any metal pins or supports. It also has a yellowed sticker in french with a handwritten note that may indicate that JL Galvin made it. Does anyone know if it would be a mistake to have my carpenter take a saw to it. Thanks for your help.

Mercy. I'd suggest you asking at the link below. A picture would help too. I look forward to seeing it.

Sounds like a big mistake to saw it up to me.....hard to say for sure though, without pictures.
But you may be better off selling it and having a custom made potting bench.
