I have a very old, very valuable, drop top, marble top, walnut dresser. It is, EastLake I believe, with “pin and cove” dovetail drawers.
Many years ago, about 45 years ago actually, I splattered some battery acid on this dresser and did not know it till the next day.
When it got noticed there were dark, almost black, stains on the wood.
I know this is asking a lot, but would anybody have any suggestions or ideas how to remove the stains.
My fear is that just sanding might not remove the spots.
I am not sure if refinishing would de-value this piece more than the stains.
