            72 Wondrous Drawers!!  My Dream Cabinet!!  Made in Berlin, Ontario sometime between 1911-1916 for use in a General Store.  Berlin, Ontario changed it's name to Kitchener in 1916 due to the stigma involved with Berlin in the beginnning of WWI.  This cabinet is 8ft wide and heavier than you can imagine....we had 6 guys bring it home from Country Corner Antiques (again...my favourite store) and when we moved from Hamilton to the river here, we had movers...who were not impressed with the weight of this baby.  It does come apart in two pieces, top and bottom, but is solid oak. Each drawer has a slide-in glass piece behind the front of the drawer where you could put grains, pastas, beans, etc to fill it up and I haven't finished yet....obviously.  The bottom are slider doors and the space inside those cupboards is huge, along with the four deep drawers above them.  Presently it sits in our spare room.  It's difficult to figure out where to put such a massive piece of furniture!
