    a friend of mine needs help with refinishing a table

    hi gang! i got a message from a friend of mine last night, here it is in her own words. "I have my grandparents old dining table. The top has some damage (water rings and discoloration) and I want it finished and sealed. The issue is that it also has a painted border that I want to keep on it." there will be pics as soon as she sends them to me. if any of you (dave h, et al.) would happen to know a restorer here in minnesota that you can recommend, it would be certainly appreciated.

    The only suggestions I have are try calling one of the guys in the MN Woodworkers Guild: http://www.mnwwg.org/contactus.html or try Woodcraft in Bloomington or Rockler's in Minnetonka. The very best finishing guy, Jon Arno, died a few years back. He was from Stillwater.
