    Quick note on refinishing a big Job

    Take a lot of pictures before so you don't screw up.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    3 pieces, large partners desk, Cardenas and book that sits on top. All 3 need to go darker. Thank God that it was not the other way around.

    Doctors office. We had 12 pieces that were flood damaged. So I will work late and darken all three.

    Larry What I thought was going to be a long evening turned out to be not so bad. Jarrod and Zav scuffed all 3 pieces up and removed the hardware and I mixed the tone into the finish Mag-Na-Lac. and knocked them all out is under 2.5 hours. Not bad for a novice :-)
