So, my brother in law manages an apartment complex, he gets stuff people leave behing when they split in the middle of the night. The first two pictures are a blanket chest made of solid cedar. It was painted white (with regular house paint).Sorry, I didn’t occur to me to take “before” pictures. I sanded it all down and hit it with 4 coats of wipe on poly then some paste wax. looks OK, but I’m going to replace the hinges as they are junk. maybe add some other hardware,,,not sure yet. The last two pictures are of some sort of telephone table or something. I’m going to re-finish it and see how it comes out.
