Not the quality I have come to expect from the Amish

What is your opinion of this product?

the apothecary stand actually came in record time. I was expecting 3-6 weeks. It does come fully assembled. A big plus. Packed great. I needed something quite small for this space and when I unpacked it, and put it in the place where I wanted it, it was perfect. The next day I decided to put some items into the drawers. When I opened the drawers I couldn't believe the toxic smell. Every single drawer smelled and gave me a headache. I am quite sensitive to smells. Also the inside of the cabinet where the drawers fit was not finished. It is very rough and not fully painted. The edges are not finished and looks like the wood was cut with a parring knife. If you take the drawers out and look into the cabinet you can see the wall behind it. Same with the drawers. The bottom of the drawers do not meet the sides and you can see the floor near the edges. The worse part is the smell. I googled "how to get rid of toxic paint smell naturally". White vinegar. I put cups of WV in every drawer and in the cabinet. This is day 2. Not gone yet but MAYBE a little better. I grew up near New Wilmington, PA which is an Amish community and I am very familiar with their excellent work. My parents had the kitchen and bathroom cabinets made by the Amish and they built our garage and did the roof. This small stand does not reflect the quality that I have come to expect from Amish carpenters. This was my experience. If the smell dissipates, I can live with it. If not, perhaps the superintendent can use it for small items like screws. Purchase at your own risk. Perhaps I just received a lemon cabinet??? May all beings be peaceful.
