Hello,

I finally did it! I bought a piece of furniture that does not fit through my basement hatchway and must be dis-assembled before it can get into the house. It is a rustic two-door cupborad approx. 5 feet wide by almost 6 feet tall. I have started to take it apart, but am stuck. the crown moulding, doors, and front facing strips are all off, but I don't know whether to pull the back, top, bottom, or sides off first. The wood is somewhat soft and finish nails are many. I am using a mallet, crowbar, cardboard padding, hammer, etc. Any hints? Thank you, margaret
