That's an interesting piece. I've seen similar ones to it but yours looks to be in very nice condition. The talk about the carving led me to some snooping and I found this regarding the machines that ...

Post: RE: Bi-Fold door too narrow for closet opening

It could be an option if you can make it look like it's supposed to be that way. Is the door already finished or are you finishing it? Can you make the added material match?

This would get you pretty close. Wouldn't be difficult to move the cue notch, add the cup holders, and the drawer below the seat. https://www.canadianwoodworking.com/plan...ator-chair

Well, it doesn't say it's all solid wood. Only the bits that are wood are solid wood. Even the sawdust embedded in the glue is solid wood.  :D

You don't have to leave the quartz out of the next one. Just give it a little room so the wood can expand and contract without colliding with the tile.
