This last weekend I scored a really nice 54” round dining table. It’s got a black painted surface. It’s top is planks of Chinese Birch. (yea it’s made in China :( ). I am considering stripping the black finish off and refinishing the top. One finish I am considering is a veneer. Just wondering if the birch is stable enough for a good veneer surface?
The store I got it from normally sells this table for 2K, it’s made by Kincaid furniture. I contacted Kincaid to find out the type wood on the top. To say that I got this table for a steal is an understatment. It was such a low price I have no problem investing into it to make it nicer than the standard black finish.
For those that don’t know, I tend to go out and find BARGIN priced high quality furnishings and bring them up to a new level of quality. I buy real cheap and that way I can renew and save a fortune.
So to Veneer or stain and refinish.
