American Empire Pedestal table (ca. 1840-50)

The history of this pedestal table was discussed in an earlier post. The main problems it has are loose veneer and some damage to the finish of the top. Because of the extent of the damage the finish had to be removed on the top. The finish on the base will be restored. Below are some photos of the removal of the finish and the repair to the veneer of the base.

The base has been masked off to prevent damage to the finish.The table wit the finish removed. The light color is mostly due to the angle of the photo.Repairs to the veneer on the base.
