    Furniture repairs and refinishing

    I'm a professional woodworker in Greensboro, NC, and I frequently get requests to repair, modify, or refinish furniture, usually chairs and tables. Although I do such work when I have time, I seem to stay booked up with new builds and have trouble finding time to do these jobs. Are there any...

    Refinishing a dance floor with Waterlox...any suggestions?

    I'm going to sand and refinish a portable oak dance floor that my family uses for clogging. The Waterlox sealant was top choice because you don't need to re-strip the entire floor to add a coat when it gets worn thin, just clean it and add another coat. Is there anyone who has done this...

    Quote for refinishing hardwood floors in Monroe, NC

    A friend of mine is selling his house in Monroe, NC and needs to refinish his hardwood floors. It is approx 2000 SF of stained oak flooring. Does anyone out there do floors or know someone who does? He obviously doesn't want to spend a lot of money since he is selling. Thanks!

    Refinishing A guitar

    I picked up an inexpensive Strat knock off of craigslist the other day. $30 guitar, body, pickups, pretty much everything to make a playable guitar. I figured for $30 bucks I wouldn't go to wrong. It's a pretty decent little guitar, don't know if the pickups work or not I'll need to rewire...

The idea is that when someone comes in and looks at a piece of furniture in the store and it is in need of repair/refinishing if there was someone...

    Refinishing an old gunstock

    A friend of mine asked me if I could refinish an old rifle gunstock for him. He thinks it is between 30 and 40 years old. The wood appears to be hard maple with a brown toner type finish on it. The finish has come off in a few places, and the wood beneath is not stained. First, any ideas on what...

    Floor refinishing advice?

    Our screened-in porch floor is made of 3" tongue and groove yellow pine. It is chemically treated, but I can't remember what it is called (commonly known as "porch flooring"). I do know that it will not accept a water based finish. Anyway, it is about 12 years old and needs refinishing. I...

    Refinishing problem

    I’m refinishing and old (not antique) desk. The top is a nice, reasonably thick, mahogany veneer. The problem is that it was grain filled with white filler before it was sprayed with the usual thick toners to cover up that nice veneer. I’ve stripped and sanded it but the white filler...

    Chair Refinishing

    I have 4 to "refinish" for a friend of mine, but I'm pretty much clueless about how to go about it! :help: These are fairly old I think, but they are sturdy and I don't know what kind of wood they are. I've kinda washed them off by hand with some mild soap & water as a starting point. Cane...

    Refinishing Piano Bench

    I was eating lunch at my church the other day and noticed the bench of the upright piano we have in the cafeteria was in pretty bad condition. One leg is broken and the top looks more like a work bench than a piano bench. So I decided to bring it home and get it back into shape. I'd appreciate...

    Refinishing chest of drawers

    I worked in screen printing for about 15 years and back then we didn't use gloves or respirators, so I got a major dose of chemical, had to quit that career and still have sensitivities to certain chemicals. I can't walk down the detergent isle in a grocery store without gasping for air. So...
