wseand, great job on the restoration of that piece. It shows that you took your time and put a lot of work into it. You should be proud of the results you achieved. I tend to take projects and underestimate the time or have a hell of a learning curve to concur to complete a project how I see it in my head. I am in the finishing stages of such a project right now and only have to stain and finish. Thanks for the inspiration to complete my project. I love the advice and inspiration I receive on here.

Very nice restore job Bill. I have seen a lot of this type of fine furniture in my younger days.It is a Duncan Phyife style. here is his background and if you click on Duncan Phyfe 'Images' you can see the whole range of his graceful designs. This style of furniture was very popular in 40's, 50's and they were usually French polished with a very high sheen.

Looking good Jason. Sometimes I need a lot of inspiration. I look through the projects on here and they are all good, you just can't be anything but inspired.
Looking forward to seeing it finished but I'm sure not as much as you are.

I have found that Restoring furniture is a great way to learn more about woodworking. It's a love/hate relationship sometimes though.

Thanks for your comments,
Bill

Thanks Mike,
I love learning about the different styles. I was thinking mid century just from what the customer said about it's history.

Duncan Phyfe was a 19th century furniture designer Bill. I think his designs were a graceful departure from the Queen Anne style that was so popular back in those days. In fact so popular that it was and is still being sold new here and there.

Thanks John and Monte, it was a headache but well worth it.

Mike,
You think it was made in the 19th century or in the 40s or 50s. These are the things I am trying to learn.
