This is the old table purchased a few weekends ago
it's actually a desk
The little plaque is still on:
The Desk exchange
Arthur M Hansen
Chef is attacking it head on
with the grinder, wool head gear & muck boots....
Two layers of paint off
So that was a surprise....and a not a good one
the prior owner apparently loved his cigarettes and left them all around the edge to burn
But the cross hewn oak is amazing- beautiful striations
Working so hard
clothes are starting to come off...
The next day the big guns come out
chef is hell bent on fixing up the table
legs come off and everything is re- enforced
Got rid of the cig burns and sanded smooth
we rubbed Tung oil on - amazing product for refinishing furniture
and then a coat of Howard Feed-n-Wax
beeswax + orange oil
now we have a most excellent kitchen table
Ready for some wonderful meals, conversations, baking and home work time
Sur la Table- means "on the table"
and there will be only goodness
served on the table from now on!
