The piece I worked on was a Sheraton-sryle, two-drawer work table, typical of early 19th-Century American furniture building. Knowing how to apply the appropriate finish takes a good appreciation of furniture style. You have to approximate the original as closely as possible-in color as well as in topcoat composition. The best way to get onto the right track is to study furniture styles as thoroughly as you can. Talk to people experienced with period pieces-museum curators, serious collectors and restoration or conservation craftsmen. They are usually very willing to share technical information. Also try to see as many original examples as possible.Visit the woodworking craft finish please go to woodworkingplans.tv website.
