I have my grandfather's secretary, which he got from his grandfather. Solid cherry, incredibly functional, and beautiful. It means the world to me.

@arvilla_trag: Your block-front cherry secretary is beautiful. The fact that it's been in your family for five generations is truly remarkable. What a treasure!
