It's a draw leaf table and the leaves weren't too bad but the center part was covered in hundreds of cigarette burns and oil. I think it had been used as a work bench. I love the clever design and how solid it is. It was a pleasure to see it come back to life. I did French polish on the legs but a clear varnish on the top.
fantastic job! can I ask you, how did you French polish the table, what products did you use etc?
