This one is going to be a real challenge! My friend Joe has two small barns and a house full of antique furniture. His Dad was in the antique collecting business many years ago and Joe has been fortunate enough to hang on to some very nice pieces. This piece however is not one of the nice ones. Joe dragged this table out of the barn in hopes that I can make something out of it. He plans to use it as a kitchen table in a rental house that he has at the Coast. It is a very old piece and in pretty ruff shape. The wood is full of nail holes (and nails) and the legs have been damaged because of some "make shift" bracing that was added who knows how many years ago. But there is some potential!
My plans are to completely tear this table apart, sand all of the finish, fill all the holes, glue and screw the pieces back together to make it more sturdy, and finally put on a stain finish. I'm going to have to get my Dad's help with this one on some of the repairs, but we will see how she turns out. Hope you will follow along with me as I post updates on the status of "Joe's Project"!
Have a great weekend! I know what I will be doing!
