Before and After: Antique Glass Table

By Gretchen Sawatzki

Tables with inlay and veneer can be difficult to restore properly. Having been stored in a garage for several years, this antique table from the 1920s sustained weathering, water and structural damage. Made of walnut and oak, this antique table needed sanding, refinishing, and stabilization. Here's the before and after of this restoration project.

The beautiful inlay and veneer table top was heavily scratched, faded, and lacking luster. The broken pedestal was glued and clamped into place to secure it. After a good cleaning and several rounds of sanding, the table needed a solid refinishing. A custom color was mixed and used for the refinish.

After the refinishing, a new glass table top was cut and placed on top for a full restoration.
