Abstract

This chifforobe (armoire) is made from the ancient heart of pine boards by President Jimmy Carter. The 39th President of the United States made a number of these cabinets. This piece is part of the furnishings in the President’s home office in Plains, Georgia. President Carter indicates that the wood for this piece came from the attic of Rosalynn’s Great-Grandfather’s home. The doorknobs show distinct growth ring patterns with more than 50 years visibly counted.
