Hi, have had quite a time trying to find anything on time periods for the actual size of milled boards.
This comes from getting an old farmers handmade cherry 2pc cupboard. it was dated to 1850. I love this piece but am having a hard time believing it's as old as was determined.(which doesn't really matter, but i'd love to know) It has 7/8 in thick wood, in most places and am not finding anywhere that clues in on when they milled to that thickness? Anyone have an idea? or where I can go to look up how to age a piece of furniture?
