Neighbor asked me to “make pretty” the dining room table that had been in storage and had received water damage. Used Fornby’s paint remover to remove what was left of the finish. Washed the remaining finish to get down to the initial stain and even it out without removing it all together. Re-stained using red mahogany and golden oak. Cut shellac for one coat, full strength second coat and three coats of spar varnish, 2 coats of wax. It is a large table – seats 12 without the inserts. Also completed the two 4-leg supports (one for each end leaf). Mostly manual labor, but considering the initial condition, they came out pretty well. Neighbor was happy.
