Hmm. I was going to cancel, but they want the order number to be included in the cancellation email and I guess I deleted all that info when I made the order. I checked out as a guest at Tool Nut, so no log in there. Maybe I'm getting the danged thing afterall.
Thanks. Its age puts it past the "hand built" era but not so far in to the mass manufacture that the veneer on the three pieces I have, chest of drawers, dresser and headboard, got too thin. I only want to clean it up the finish and then its being used. The pieces *may* have been refinished before, I checked with the DNA drop and it did not do anything to the finish, after the mineral spirits pulled the wax off. So, i need to get some lacquer thinner to test for that. I attached some pics, of the three pieces. The drawers and dresser have been cleaned up and used for years, the headboard has been stored. Don't want to refinish as the three pieces match and I like that the yellowing matches.
Anyway, you can see some runs and such in the finish and I'd love to polich those down a bit if I can do it without screwing it up. Still, step one is find out what finish I am looking at.
