I love oak. Raw, unpainted, American Oak. I saw this piece in a big sale in a warehouse a while back. I was looking it over and caressing the oak when the guy over the sale informed me that it is a humidor. Well, I knew no different. It has a plug and some kind of tubing and fan. I just nodded my head and smiled and thought "Whatever. It's oak. I like it". We settled on a price and I loaded it up, this oak thing.
Wouldn't it make a cool kitchen island?
I took it to Primitiques and never plugged it in. Slapped a price on it and labeled it "humidor". It looked good loaded up and displayed. Oak. Yum!
A nice man came by one day, plugged it in, discovered it "cools" and it is not a humidor. Huh. An old pie display? Some kind of restaurant or deli display? What's your best bet? It's still for sale. $175. Come and get it. Tell me what it is before you load it up. All I know is...well, it's oak.
