Back in early January I posted a request for help. I needed to refinish an
oak dresser I had made to come closer to some new bedroom furniture we had
purchased that was cherry with some kind of a dark stain on it. I got lots
of help from this group as usual but I want to give Robert Witte (posting
name is nailshooter41) a special thanks. Robert's assistance to me with the
stripping part of the project was VERY valuable Thank you Robert.
I also got some help from a neighbor who is a professional furniture
refinisher. He mixed up a batch of a laquer finish that met my goal for
having the two dressers look closer in color than what they had been. My
contribution this project has just been elbow grease. I have posted pictures
of the original oak dresser, the piece to be "matched", and the refinished
dresser. The picture of the original oak dresser is really bad. If you look
at the color of the dresser end closest to the camera, you will get an idea
of the color. The three pictures are here:
Thanks to you all and especially to Robert Witte.
