Hmmm. The cuts looked so rough, I thought they might have been overseas made. I guess everyone has different standards for manufacturing. We once purchased a ready to finish buffet/hutch from a manufacturer located in Michigan. I was very taken aback when it arrived. It was supposed to be made of maple, but all of the cabinetry was maple veneer ply. The entire unit was simply stapled together (no glue) and the back of the hutch top was 1/8" smaller than the face frame. The face frames were just pocket screwed together. The top of the buffet part was the only thing glued and was made from 1 1/2" wide boards. The wood that was solid maple was full of mineral deposits, so I'm guessing it was the lowest quality wood they could find. Portions of the trim had been cut with a saber saw. I ended up knocking it all apart and re-building it from the pieces. An $850 kit. When I called the manufacturer to complain about the construction, they put me through to the shop foreman and he was quite proud of their construction methods.
I've gone out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.
