The Secretarat, getting a new sheen
We are mid way through a staining job on a beautiful secretariat. It features intricate carving all over and this lovely shell design you see in the photo above. When it first came in the finish was failing and the wood almost had a raw look to it. The piece had lost all of it's luster or sheen and the stain had been reduced to an un-even redish tone. After stripping it, doing repairs, and prepping it, we are now giving it a beautiful color and a glossy sheen. This Secretariat will look so good when it is finished!
