In Response To: Old oak bureau (Jack)

Plywood began to be used in furniture about 1900, but that does not tell the hole story. You need to look for tool marks on the back and other normally unseen spots to see whether they were made by hand or machine. Also look at the style of the piece for a clue to when it was made. Refinishg depends on the existing finish condition and the intended use of the piece.
