    Assuming the joinery is sound and there are no hidden gotchas, $2000 is a STEAL for that thing. Solid blond mahogany? Relief carvings of bamboo? Oh my.

    The style of the cabinet says “Sake inside”, but people who drink Sake should not have drink cabinets.

    Sorry but that design just isn’t very “tiki” to any large degree. It is nice, though. Probably isn’t real mahogany.

     Has anyone ascertained the origin of putting numerals in parentheses after writing out the same number?

    There seems to be universal agreement among people who should know that it is neither necessary nor useful nor required by any known law.

    My own guess is that it extends back to the era of hand-copied documents but that’s just something I made up, I have no evidence for it.

    Wow.  I hope it has a “Dean Martin slept here” plaque somewhere.

    And Cory, how could you resist?  Four (4) hidden compartments?

    I think the very pale color of the wood is going to make it difficult to sell.
    I personally don’t find it a terribly attractive piece.

    Looks a lot like the radio bars Philco produced in the 1930s.

    Much rougher shape, but more elaborate.
