This past week, I started a project to repair and refinish an Oak dining table and 6 chairs. It’s a pedestal style table where the pedestal and top splits to accept 5 leaves that was made in Hanover Ontario more than likely in the early to mid 1900′s. The leather chairs are upholstered with straw stuffing!
I don’t have a single “before” picture as the table top was not attached to the pedestal due to one of the feet having been broken off.
What I’ll do is showcase each piece or a group of pieces as they are tackled.
That being said, here is a before & after pic of half of the pedestal:
The old finish had to be stripped down and restained. A lot of old dirt came off and the new stain really brightened up the ray-flecks. Especially with the finish being pure Tung oil.
And that’s all the news that’s fit to print … for now!
