This is my third project that I`ve made and the first that I`m posting.
I know that comparing to other projects made by my fellow woodworkers this doesn`t seem much, but for me it`s very special, because it has a very nice story. It was given to an aunt of mine by her grandfather and has been in her family for 4 generations. A couple of years ago was scheduled for fire wood, but luckily I saw it and save it from a “fiery death” :)
I started restoring this beautiful genuine romanian sculpture about a month ago and I was supposed to finish restoring this table on the 31st of May as an anniversary gift for my wife (1 year of marriage) but due to the bad weather I couldn`t finish it sooner than this week-end. Better late than never, right? :)
The table is made out of lime tree wood and was finished (originally) with some black stain, I think. Now it`s finished with primer, enamel, lacquer, patina, lacquer.
