a fine regency mahogany centre table

This fine Regency mahogany centre table required restoration to lifting & blistered veneers.

The beading aroun the rim also required loose sections gluing as well as replacements turned on the lathe,

The top had previously been varnished with a Matt polyurethane varnish which required stripping off.

The top was then bleached with oxalic acid to remove stains and reduce redness in the surface.

The top was then traditionally hand French polished then after a week to harden dulled down and wax polished resulting in a fine mellow surface.

The base also had repairs carried out to the damaged veneers then coloured & wax polished.
