my friend ( a woman) has asked me several times if i could get her old Hans J Wegner table to look a bit more inviting so to speak, I though what the hell i am making Wegner furniture every day so why not..
oh dear oh dear, this turned out to be a harder job then first expected, the table was not made by PP møbler in the first place, second it was a veneered tabletop and not a solid one which i am used to make.
i had to re-glue some of the edges and sand it down very carefully getting all the +50 year old lacquer off it.
the legs and brass fittings got a good shine too
i think it turned out pretty good though :)
hope u guys like the result, feel free to comment and ask.
the tabletop as it was when i started
re-gluing the edges
taking the legs apart, sanding them down and scraping all the old glue off them
putting the legs back together and applying a good clear bio-oil
polishing the old brass to a shiny new finish
and the tabletop all oiled up
she was very pleased by the result by the way :)
nb: the table was produced by Andreas tuck many years ago it was called AT-303 it is now made by PP møbler and is called pp85
