Ok – it’s all done.

After I matched the two new leaves to the original table color – I stripped the old table. Used a card scraper, followed by 80 grit and then card scraped again. Then I did the same process on the original table that I did on the leaves. The result is here and i’m quite pleased:

Hi Ryan,

I had a reproduction of that table from the 70’s that I just got rid of. Mine was made out of press board and was not worth saving.

Thanks for sharing, and maybe we will run into each other sometime as I also live in Spokane.
