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

    Thanks Vaughn, the bottom left table only has 3 coats of 50/50 oil on it. It ended up like the other one. But for some reason a pic was not taken. The customer was so pleased he dropped on a 1700's flip top to be repaired. I love it when costumers appreciate the work by giving us their priceless pieces to work on.

    Looks good as always Dave
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Rob bottom Left table has that crack, filled and colored. The customer wanted the character of the tables to remain so I matched the crack up to a dark old split.

    That table looks so gungy that I would never have thought of trying to restore it. You came up with a table I would like to have.

    Great work.

    Enjoy,

    Fantastic job on the restoration Dave

    They defiantly look like some sort of work table. Pretty beat up for a piece of house furniture. I'm probably wrong but they don't look 1700's to me. The wood doesn't look quite right to be that old.

    The 2 tables are more like 100-150 year old, the flip top the customer dropped off is late 1700's I'll get a pick of it up.
    we have more work in the shop than I have ever had at one time. Jarrod and I had a big Tiffy today. He wants to hire another repair man and take over the spraying. He dose not know color or have the eye for possible problems that could arise during the process of spraying so he got pissed. I wouldn't mind him spraying but I would rather him not. I didn't start spraying till I was in my 40's and the booth is getting to me. He is 25 and would be done by 40. I want to keep him from spraying.
