Our customer had inherited her childhood family table. She explained that it was brought to New Mexico on a Conestoga wagon. The table was certainly showing its age and had significant damage to the finish after being stored in a garage for many years. The wood had shrunk leaving a noticeable gap where the table leaf joined and the finish has been removed down to the raw wood in many areas. We were able to fill the table gap by cutting a strip section off the leaf and utilizing that piece to bridge the visible separation, when the table top was in the closed position. We then stripped the top and stained and refinished the pedestal base to match. As a cost saving measure rather than fully refinishing the table base we were able to image enhanced the base as it was not as damaged.
