I can answer most questions about the repairing and refinishing of all your old furniture items (the things we call antiques). I can also give you advice on what wood items to choose and what wood items to avoid at auctions, flea markets etc. I DO NOT give appraisals on antiques as this is not my field of expertise.
I have been repairing, refinishing and of course buying old furniture for the past 30 years. On any given weekend I can be found at auction sales or flea markets searching out a good buy. I have taken several courses in this area over the years, but I find "Hands On" learning to be the best teacher. I can help you avoid the pitfalls and problems of this wonderful rewarding craft.

Hi Randy I like your question. I live in Canada and can tell you how it is here but its likely no different in the USA. Unless you have a large storage area, I avoid large items like dining sets, sideboards
Hi JoAnn Nice to hear from you. What a lovely piece. No panic on the white "blushing". There is a product made for this but I have never used it. Its called "Blush Eraser". Instead I take the cheap
