Back in the "day" I used to help one half of Burl Brothers make furniture...Steve Seigel is my BIL. As payment for a huge slab job on the coast...Granite Construction was hired to remove the trunks!!, They made me a big redwood coffee table; just short of 6' long, 3 huge burl legs...it's a center point for our living room. But over the years...and it has been a few, the top scratched and scuffed. I thought the top would be a fun refinish project. I know Steve shot it with catalyzed lacquer and that's not gonna happen. I have at my disposal a Makita 4x4 pad sander, PC belt sander, and a Mutabo 3" ROS. The finish does have a bit of sheen to it so I'd like to keep that. I do have a 1qt automotive gun, PC pancake compressor. I can do spray or brush/wipe on finish.
Thanks folks...this table is important to me...just because of the history.
Starting point and finish ideas ladies and gentlemen? This is my first refinish job.
