its all because william, that there are only certain people in this world who appreciate the beauty of wood…others dont see it….they think some color of paint will be just marvelous …so sometimes we have to turn a blind eye to what someone is getting ready to do to a beautiful piece…its really a shame huh….

We had a program on TV here a few years ago. That “Debbie TRAVIS” painted eveything she could. Made me ILL just watching her !Enjoy your restoration. It takes time, it is always worth it .

I think it all has to do with what people are exposed to. I never realized the beauty of natural wood until I got involved in woodworking. Once I began seeing all the different beautiful grains and natural colors of wood, I fell in love with it. I grew up thinking ‘cherry’ was all dark brownish red. When I first saw a natural cherry board, I couldn’t believe it was what it was because all I had known was that dark finish that you see on many different types of furniture.
I find it satisfying to show people how beautiful natural finishes really are. Some really are amazed and some just want paint anyway. It differs from person to person. All you can do is offer information.
The desk will certainly be beautiful and a family heirloom. It will be even more special to you and your family because of Lisa’s care and attention she is putting into it. It is great to see her work. I am looking forward to the subsequent posts. Thanks so much for sharing!
