A Serving Table Gleams

This lovely little serving table came to our shop recently needing a little tlc.   The finish was looking very shabby and the protective glass top was broken and gone.   If you have been reading the blog for a while, then I am sure you know what we had to do first.   We stripped that old finish right off, using our state of the art water based stripping system.
 Or next task was to complete some minor repairs to the frame.  Some of the joints had come apart so it was really quite incapable of holding glass as it was supposed to.  After we did our prep sanding our clients came by and we 'tried on' stain colors until they were happy.   We always do this for our customers so that they get exactly the look they are hoping for.

The color they went with is called 'Provincial' and they chose to have us apply a 'Semi-Gloss' finish over the top.  That color and sheen look stunning on this table.  It really allows the beautiful 'book & butt' match veneer to gleam.  We love it when the wood and the stain come together to make such a great pairing.  This table does have a glass protective top, which will keep the veneer from getting water rings, etc and should serve to persevere the finish.
