When refinishing antique inlay wood occasional tables, there are a few things that you will want to keep in mind. Here are some tips that can help you make the refinishing process go by smoothly.

Tip 1 – Cover the Rest

When working on just the inlay of the table, you will want to make sure that you are covering the rest of it for protection. Typically, you can use a clean table cloth or even tarp to cover it up.

Tip 2 – Work Slowly

When working with antiques, you want to make sure that you do not do any damage that can’t be fixed, because you will most likely not be able to find a replacement. Take your time as you work to refinish, especially when nails are part of it. When working on most projects, you can install and remove nails easily without any thought. However for this, you want to make sure that you are being careful of the rest of the furniture so you do not scratch it.

Tip 3 – Make a Plan

When refinishing an antique, make sure that you have a plan. It is important since you can’t replace it that you test or plan before you work or make any big adjustments.
