How would you restore dark hardwood furnitures to original color?
I've been looking for some old furnitures, and among others I came by a dining table made of brazilian rosewood. However, the veneer and some of the solid edges has faded to a much brighter color.
Can the color of e.g. brazilian rosewood be restored without staining? I.e. does anybody know how _deep_ the discoloration goes? Of course I ask because it is very limited how much sanding one can do on the veneer.
Something just come to my mind: could the faded parts simply be _stained_ wood/veneer which has now returned to its original brighter color?
It is somewhat more simple with a pair of massive teak chairs that I digged out from a pile of scrap: Sanding, sanding and some oil finish. Voila.
I hope you have some suggestions on the veneer restauration.
