J&P Coats Reproduction Thread Spool Cabinet
This is our extremely popular reproduction of the famous classic J & P Coats thread spool cabinets used in the general dry goods stores during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
Sewing thread and sewing notions would be displayed in these beautiful countertop cabinets. The cabinets were made in furniture factories using the same mortise-tenon and reverse side panel construction of furniture made during that time.
Thread companies would provide these cabinets mostly for free to stores that sold their threads and sewing items. Traveling salesmen would make frequent visits to restock the cabinets. The original cabinets have become high-dollar collector cabinets. They make nice end tables and serve well as small collectible and hobby cabinets.

This reproduction cabinet is a Cottage Craft Works exclusive design. It was built as a prototype by Paul Stevens and then sent to one of our Amish craftsmen to make exclusively for us.
We sell this spool cabinet finished in Cherry, Quarter Sawed Oak or Oak. (Oak is pictured). We also sell the cabinet in a complete kit. The Dark Oak pictured utilizes St. Michaels Cherry Stain a popular stain color used on Amish furniture, custom stain colors are available upon request. Select the custom stain option by clicking here to see our stain chart. Please note the stain color in the comment section upon checkout.
The spool cabinet is priced in Oak; select wood choices to see the incremental price differences. Most of the original cabinets were made from Oak.
The cabinet is Amish handcrafted from 3/4" and 1/2" premium hardwoods. There is absolutely no particle or pressed board used in these cabinets. The inside of the cabinet shows the attention to the detail of craftsmanship as much as the beautiful outside.
The sides are a reverse panel, and the inside drawer rail construction duplicates the furniture designs used during these periods. Reverse panels add character and charm to the cabinet. They are very labor-intensive; most furniture builders will just use a veneer plywood flat panel or one recessed panel. These cabinets are built to become tomorrow’s family antique heirlooms.
Our unique design has the thread decals inset into the drawer fronts and covered with Plexiglas to create a framed look. This provides a rich pop against the wood drawer front and is just another attention to detail this beautiful custom spool cabinet provides.
The spool cabinet measures 23-1/2 wide X 17” Deep X 19-1/2 Tall. The cabinet is custom-sized to make a perfect end or side table. The size also allows us to ship these UPS at an oversized rate.
Five drawers with an inside space of 19” Wide X 14” Deep X 2-3/8 Tall makes an ideal cabinet to store magazines, hobby, collections, and craft items out of the way when company comes to a calling, or use it in a sewing room to recreate a bit of nostalgia.
Drawers are finished inside as a normal furniture drawer for general storage items or add your own fabric or felt depending on what your hobby or craft needs are.
The cabinet comes standard with white Porcelain knobs as pictured. You can replace them with your own knobs. The cabinet used 1-1/2" screws that should work with standard pulls.
