I have a cherry table that I purchased at an auction. The top of the
table is damaged with scratches and lots of cigarette burns. I was
hoping to find someone that could plane ~ 1/16" off the top. The
table is located in Fairfax VA.
Any ideas where I can get this done and what it might cost?
Pictures available if interested.
Call around to local woodshops -- cabinet makers, etc. If the top has
any width, you'll probably want to run it through a drum sander (I think
you'd be hard pressed to find a planer more than 20" wide, but a drum
sander can often do 72" in two passes). I can't imagine they'd charge
much -- a few bucks. Even free if you got lucky.
Otherwise, get yourself a belt sander or random orbit sander an go at it.
