The Barrister Cabinet Repair

We’re happy, always, to do custom work for our clients, creating new pieces to suit their needs and wants. We’re happy, always, to have you reach out to us so that we can make your heart’s desire come true. But we’re also happy to restore the works of others that have suffered from time and rough handling, such as the piece we did most recently.

Not long ago, a client came to us with a panel that had been taken from a more-than-century-old barrister cabinet. True to the name, the cabinet had been moved several times in its lifetime in Mexico and the United States, traveling as circuit-riding attorneys used to do. In its most recent move, however, it didn’t fare as well as in the past.



Admittedly, a barrister cabinet needs to show what it holds. Clear, rather than colored and textured, glass is desirable therefore; it’s hard to read book titles through swirling opalescence. Fortunately, we tend to keep clear glass on hand, and so it was no difficult thing to separate the pieces of came, remove the broken glass, cut new pieces to fit, and reassemble the panel. Backed by our guarantee, the repaired piece went back to its owner–and the owner, by all accounts, is delighted with the work!


Note the breaks are no longer there.
