I know some of you will appreciate this. I get customers in the shop and I show them projects , this project I've gotten a lot of I have one or I know someone who has one but not it the shape your putting this in.
here is a look at what I've been up to. A lot more then this has been done but for a taste. Cleaned , Still the original finish is there and french polished.
Making a number of repairs to the wood and thinking of a bike ride to NY to let the pro's who work the guts all the time have at them.

Believe it or not their is actual original finish under the damaged finish in the lower pic before cleaning and polishing.
