Wood Furniture Refinisher

wood furniture refinisher

  • a skilled worker who is employed to restore or refinish buildings or antique furniture

  • As an alternative to stripping, which removes the old finish and stain down to the raw wood, there is a product called refinisher. This chemical reliquidfies the old finish and allows most of it to be removed by lifting it off with steel wool pads.

The Historical Booths

The Historical Booths

The booths you see were set in 1916. When they started to look nasty from people carving their initials in the wood, my Dad would have them varnish-stained over and over for decades unitl all of their unique qualities disappeared. He accepted the carving as a fact of life. You were a nobody unless you could show your friends your initials!! People who had moved away would stop in during a visit and look for their initials!! Check the note.
Another ritual was to stick your wad of chewing gum under the tables!! When the construction workers tore out the original tables, they got hysterical with laughter looking at a rainbow of gum wads.
The new owner hired a furniture refinisher to strip all the layers off the wood, and this is how they originally looked.
They are incredibly beautiful!! If you look closely at the seat posts, you will notice two rows of tiles on each one. They were inserted into two grooves in the posts. Check the note.
94 years, and still seating!! Now that's history!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice grain pattern on walnut stock.

In the future, I might have the stock stripped of its utilitarian, but very durable, polyurethane coat, and refinish in low lustre tung oil or linseed oil.

Update: I carefully dissolved the original shellac finish with Circa 1850 Furniture Refinisher (but still kept the colour), polished with 0000 steel wool, and finished with multiple coats of tung oil and pure lemon oil. It now sports a true old world hand rubbed oil finish. Photos coming soon!
