Cherish an Antique Day

 

 

We purchased this oak table at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago. It does not have any markings from a builder. So we have to assume that it was probably made in someones barn for their house. The craftsmanship is wonderful. The legs appear to have been hand lathed.

 

 

 

 

The feet are made of many pieces of wood put together than cut to the shape desired.

 

 

 

 

It has an mechanism to release the extra leaf which is stored under the main table.

 

 

 

I have to finish sanding the top to get the old finish off. I will then use a wood soap to clean the table thoroughly before using a clear polyurethane to give it a nice finish. Today we are to cherish antiques and I believe the best way is to restore and preserve old furniture.
