A.H.M. Furniture Repair


This is a solid walnut Serving Cabinet made by the Standard Table Company of Jamestown, NY. It is one piece of a complete set we are restoring. This set belonged to the owners mother and is complete with all the chairs.

We started by removing and re-gluing the legs. All of the legs were loose and it is better as well as more efficient to strip the legs off the piece because of the detail work in the legs.

After coloring the trim as needed it is off to the finishing room.

When the three coats of finish has dried, the piece is rubbed with 4-0 steel wool then with a soft cloth.

Finally a light bee's wax is applied and polished to the desired luster to match the other pieces in the set. Then it is off to be wrapped and delivered.
