Hello Cyber-Woodworkers! I recently purchased an old Gibbard walnut table with 2 drop-down attached leaves and 2 independent leaves. It has many legs and hidden, wooden moving parts underneath the tabletop.
Does anyone know how can I stop the table from squeaking without having anything (graphite, oils, etc.) drip onto my carpet and while also maintaining the authenticity of the table? I have heard rubbing bar soap on the moving parts may be a solution; Has anyone one else tried this? Thanks in advance!
