Just finished a restore on this table for a customer.Used Citrus strip and scrub pads,also used furniture restore for the top on account of inlays and hide glue.Topped it off with Watco Danish Oil natural and Johnson paste wax on veneer and inlayed top.Got 18 hours in project
Whats with the up-loader I can only get two pictures to load up .All in same format and not over sized.It stops and says bad request

Thanks Roger
Yes it did however I am thinking when it was built I wonder if it was dyed .Some of it would not release from wood but it looks more vintage .haha

Thanks Kiefer it paid me what I thought it was worth. I did not quote a price just told her when done it will be a piece of art and I charge strictly hourly .Done work for her before so she had no problem,right now Im doing a double bed for another customer Ive done tons of work for in past. It is a 1927 radius foot board
