My wife had inherited this sewing box years ago from my grandmother. It was beginning to fall apart so she didn’t want to use it anymore, afraid it would break. Being a family heirloom she wanted me to see if I could fix it up.
I stripped it with various chemical strippers and scotchbrite, and did some joint repair work. It’s stained with Target Coatings WR4000 Cordovan, sealed with a coat of Zinsser Sealcoat shellac – sprayed, and topcoated with Target Coatings EM6000 Laquer – sprayed. I picked up the knobs, screws and washers at a BBS.
I did this 4 years ago and she’s still using it, so at least structurally I was able to save it.
