As oak is very strong the oak cupboards are durable and can withstand rugged use too. Here are you options form buying a good antique oak cupboard.
· Buy from a good and trusted Antique dealer who is backed by being a member of such antiques associations as Bada (British Antique Dealers' Association; www.bada.org) or Lapada (London and Provincial Antique Dealers' Association; www.lapada.org). They also usually organize antique exhibitions where you will find the best dealers displaying their items all under one roof.

At Antiques of Woodstock we have a classic selection of antique oak cupboards including this 15th/16th Century Oak Cupboard is simplistic and naive with planked construction and dovetail jointed with the shelves having protruding tenons through the sides. Planked throughout with a single central door - an open bottom shelf – and shelves fitted internally. Great colour and patination. This begs to be admired rather than hidden in a bedroom!
For a more practical antique oak cupboard see our 18th Century Oak Armoire from Northern France. It has
the two panelled doors enclosing a deep interior and is raised on extended stile supports.
