Video – Final Episode: Refinishing A Merklen Brothers “Shabby” Table
Well, the table is finished and it looks fantastic. In this final episode, John Hutchinson of Rose Valley Restorations in West Chester, PA explains the process that he, Kyle, and Bill followed to bring the table to this final condition. There is a luminescence to the color due to the shellac that John mixes himself from imported flakes that can’t be captured on the video.
The table is now in my foyer next to my other golden Oak pieces, including a tall lion-crested Oak hall bench from around 1910. They all look like they belong together.
Thanks again to John for allowing me to film the process and for creating a work of art for me.
