    Curio cabinet

    This nice Victorian Curio Cabinet is from the same customer and the Large table we just finished. He has hopefully much more work for us. It's in bad shape and needs to be hand stripped to save what veneer I can and then reveneer and color and french polish.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    That's a unique design Dave. So what is a french polish?

    What a unique piece. It sure shows a rough life there at the end. Like others have said, can't wait to see your work transform it.
    So do you find yourself have a client for a period of time working on stuff they just inherited or have enough to rework the pieces they have collected?

    There are a few treads that explained the Process.
    This piece has been butcher. the front has been faux painted to hide what I think is a pore veneering job or the lack of the right veneer. Mahogany.

    What kind of glue will you use to attach the new veneer? I ask because I was watching a clip the other day on marquetry and the guy used hot melt hide glue.
