« Part 6: It's Mahogany, Man! And it's Porous! Part 7 of Refurb, Antique Walnut Table series no next part

Here’s the top before any of this started.

After dis-assembly of the top from the base, jointing the edges, re-gluing, re-attaching, scraping and re-re-re-finishing (thanks again, Andy!), this table got the fifth and final coat of 3-2-1 and is DONE.

Now to find a place for it in the house, because it’s too nice to sit in the shop! Thanks for looking.

Nice work. That came out great Smitty. You’d never know that crack was ever there now. I agree it is too good for the shop.

Nice! You turned this one around, and I think I learned something here. The finish really came out looking good.

It turned out to be worth all the headaches! Beautiful. And NO evidence of the previous damage.

Smitty you cracked it, it looks like a well cared for antique
It can be hard to attain that and not look refurbished.
