Hi all.

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

underneath

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

thats the hard way to learn that you have to turn people down
when they come up with such deadlines

with less than 24 hours I think you made a great job
but please don´t do it again …. you make all others looking bad …. :-)

you know the words ….. good things take the time it takes not a second more or less LOL (klovborg)

doing jobs for fun in your sparetime isn´t the same as do it on the factory
give yourself looooong deadlines so you don´t burn out before time :-)

take care
Dennis
