Step Two Complete!
This thing is going to be beautiful! This is the bottom shelf that I finished up tonight. It has really good color and some nice grain in the wood. It really does have a lot of character. I think this table has some serious age on it. You can just tell as you are sanding the wood that it has been around a while. I already have someone interested in buying it and I think they are going to be pleased with the end result.
It is now on to the legs. They take a bit longer to do as they are more difficult to sand. I have the first leg covered in some stripper right now and I am just going to see how it does. Hopefully most of the paint will come off with just one coat. I will then hit the high spots with a sander and work my way into the spindle grooves with my dremel tool. Gonna be some work, but if it keeps turning out like this, I'm gonna be pleased!
