Old guest-house table as found with tacked-on linoleum surface, lots of damage and many layers of paint; Why bring it home? You may ask, well, hidden under all that paint and linoleum was an early Australian-made Cedar table just waiting to be rescued.
New life for the 'old guest-house table'. The table was completely disassembled, linoleum, tacks and nails removed from the top and the layers of paint striped away, the table's future was decided. The top needed cross-banding to hide the nail holes, three new drawers needed to be made, a back needed to be cross-banded to match in with the top and once assembled, this rejuvenated table deserved French-polishing…well rewarded for effort.
An assortment of chisel handles. The majority of the handles are of Cotoneaster, the double hooped 'Titan' style handles are of Spotted Gum. The handles are finished with two coats of shellac, although the Spotted Gum handles are firstly given a coat of linseed oil and left overnight prior to the shellac.
