Tools & Materials

  • Stripping lacq thin sander


Table and chairs inherited from parents. Reputed to have been made during Civil War era. Stripped poly and stain down to red oak (I think). Want to reveal the natural wood. It was near impossible to get the poly off. But finally did and sanded down to original light color. very pleased with the table top. Working on skirt and edges now. One broken leg so will ahve to order one to match. Unsure how the skirt and legs will end up. May use light top and let the color gradually grow darker from skirt to legs. Will see how it looks. Inspiration was to use the rectangle table and wanted lighter color to blend with white brocade parsons chairs.
