Do you sell the furniture you refinish?

Camden Fisher says:

Thanks a tremendous help on dent repair, but thanks for the mid-century refinish. I have a end table almost like yours, it has a strange reddish color to it, not like a normal traditional cherry. It has hardlines like a mid-Cent. so I’m thinking it’s like yours. I bough at cherry stain, but I’m going to take back, American walnut might be the right fit for my piece. Thanks for your help, I picked up many valuable tips.

I’m about to refinish some 54 Drexel dressers. I’m questioning wether to use a stain, probably walnut, or just to oil and then shellac. I noticed you have used stain in the vids I’ve seen. Why do you use stain rather than oil? My thought is that if the finish is not blotchy, you get a deeper finish with oil. You thoughts?

Good job! Is that veneer finish?
If not do you know of any info on how to strip/restain veneer?

Hi – Great video – I have a question: Why do you have to strip the stain off first? Can’t you just sand it off? I have a heavy pine dining table that I’m going to refinish. Thanks!

I am trying to restore a walnut veneer Lane coffee table that had been painted black. I have stripped it with Citristrip,, but there are still a lot of very dark areas after treating it twice. I will try following your procedure to hopefully restore its beautiful grain. What grit of sandpaper should I use so it doesn’t damage the veneer? Thanks for your video. It is a good demo.

Go to Facebook and add (mid century modern) the community is awesome and very helpful identifying any pieces without marking.

I finished stripping, sanding and staining my Lane coffee table, and it looks beautiful! However, after spraying it with three coats of the Deft, the surface does not feel smooth anymore. What should I use to buff it out and get a smooth surface?

Steve Castillo says:

That is a nice table

Bronco Billy says:

Good video, thanks for sharing your techniques.

What kind of mineral spirits is that? I’ve never seen it be white.
