While looking through posted sets, I was confused to see this one set in which some photos were viewed 500 times and others were virtually unviewed. Then it occurred to me that the viewed pictures are all dovetail pictures that were in the first or second set of dovetail pictures I posted. I never got around to posting pictures of the furniture from which the dovetails originated. This post aims to fix that.

This set is from an auction in Wilson, NC back in August of 2013. It was an above average auction with more secretaries than I am used to seeing in one place.

Here are some interesting pieces I would like to share. Like this chest on chest:

Looking at the chest now I think this is a married piece, two chests that came together later in life.

Then there is this unique corner cabinet with unique hinges:
