J&P Coats Reproduction Thread Spool Cabinet Kit
The famous classic J & P Coats thread spool cabinets were 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 the threads and sewing items. Traveling salesmen would make frequent visits to restock the cabinets.

This is our 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.
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 kit unfinished in Cherry, Quarter Sawed Oak or Oak. The cabinet is priced in Oak as pictured, select wood options 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. The inside of the cabinet shows the attention to the detail of craftsmanship as much as the beautiful outside.
Kit includes the decals and all the wood.
The sides are a reverse panel, and the inside drawer rail construction duplicates the furniture designs used during these periods. These cabinets are built to become tomorrow’s family antique heirlooms.
The finished 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 cabinet comes standard with white Porcelain knobs as pictured. If you wish to have different knobs you can just remove these and add your own.
