This is a project I did for a friend. The table was bought for £10 and was finished in a horrible brown possibly shellac ? and was at the time an unknown wood.
The table was bought with this type of matte finish in mind.
When I began to strip the original brown finish off I discovered it was made from lovely defect free oak WOW I thought what a bargain.
When stripped back it looked lovely and I suggested just a clear varnish or oil. ( I have lost the photos of this stage because my phone is broken !!) It was decided to go ahead and paint it anyway as originally planned, though I did protest a little.
There was a couple of splits and a bit of damage which i repaired prior to painting.
The paint is Farrow and Ball dead flat oil in french gray, supposedly the most matte finish available (2 % reflective) The undercoat is green! this had 2 undercoats and 2 top coats.
I think it looks good now its complete but I would have liked to use danish oil.

The large wooden thing in the background is my new workbench which is nearly done now, I will post this when complete.

That’s a nice William and Mary style table.

My wife has one for me to refinish.
I’ll be using a traditional milk paint.

Nice! I have almost this exact same table, also in need of refinishing… :) It’s been sitting here for at least 10 years… one of these days I will get around to it. Also a weird brown unknown wood. :)

I’m trying to figure out if anyone else has oriental carpets in their workshop… :)

Lovely job.
