vintage salvage store counter

Saved from the burn pile.

I was very lucky to have gotten this nice section of vintage store counter.  A friend of mine had already moved the poor thing out to a meadow and it was ready to be burned with other scrap wood.

I claimed it , covered it with a tarp and arranged to have it brought to my building.  Once it was inside, I realized how huge it is but I think it will be a great check out or display counter in the shop.  The condition is quite rough but there is a lot worth saving. The entire front is done in oak panels and is completely intact.  I wonder what the three cubby slots were for?

Stay tuned to see what I end up doing to this rough customer.  Spruce up the finish? paint it? What will I find for the countertop?  Can the broken door (see it laying on top) even be repaired?
