Only reason I am showing this is that years ago I stripped back a French polished sideboard only to reveal rubbish wood, crappy joinery and lots of fill. So after hours of work I was left with a sideboard only fit for painting and leaving in the garage.
So this old table belonged to my wifes grandfather and has been in our garage for years and the french polish all scratched and damaged. When I started to strp off the dark lacquer I was not expecting much. But I was pleasantly surprised to find beneath, a beautiful table – lovely wood, nice joinery and no fill. Sanded down to 220 grit and oiled with some old mineral oil that was lying around. When I took it out into the daylight and say the result I wished I had taken more care. The pictures do not do it justice. So its not my woodwork only my sanding.
