This is a beautiful restoration. The secretary had a lot of character as it was but your restoration is a vast improvement.

Thanks for the post.

That’s a unique piece andnow beautiful, to be sure. It takes talent to restore a piece and not do more harm than good. You did great! Thanks for sharing.

Excelent restoration! Very fine work. Did you remove the old finish just clean and touch it up?
