This is one of the project I mentioned earlier. Finally finished this Victorian table I purchased for $5 in 1969. Busy with life (mostly child rearing and working) I had started to refinish this table in 1969. Over the years it became wobbly, so I took it apart, repaired and refinished. Now that it is finished, I have but one held-over project to finish… an old chest.

Well, your refinishing of it came out great—even if it did take you several decades!

Well worth the wait. Quite an interesting and intricate piece and it looks to be very high quality as well. I hope we don’t have to wait 44 years for your post.

I thought I was slow! Just proves that if you take your time and do the job right it’ll turn out great.
