A friend up mine gave me a desk with a really ugly looking coat of paint. The desk itself was really sturdy, so i figured I’d just strip the paint off and refinish it, but as I removed each layer of paint… i discovered it was made of a really beautiful wood. I sanded it down, and it’s looking really nice now, but my goal is to fully restore this desk to it’s original beauty and put a nice protective coat of polyurethane on it.
I unfortunately have no idea what kind of wood i’m working with and i was hoping one of your guys could help me with the identification process. I’d just like to know what I’m working with before I get too much further in the restoration.
Thanks so much!
