When the COVID pandemic hit, I set up a workspace in the corner of the living room to work from home. My desk was an antique drop leaf table that had come from my grandmother. But that table had MANY years of use, abuse, neglect, and Lemon Pledge build up. So I stripped it down, sanded out the worst dents, and put on 4 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. The top is a fairly thick veneer, I think it’s mahogany?

Nice work, looks like new and being from your grandmother makes the save special.
