This is a desk I picked up at an auction for $10.00. They said it was all mahogany but you know auctioneers. I got it home and sure enough it was, no plywood at all.
It was painted with the old type antique paint ( white ). After a lot of sanding and scrapping i got the top and draws and legs clean. I put 4 coats of poly. on with sanding of 220 between coats. Painted rest Krylon latex saten black. The brass is original, just used baking soda with vinegar to clean them.
Do you think I got my monies worth?
