Victorian Walnut Games Table

2010_0203wednesdaycanon0009

Victorian Burr Walnut Veneered Games Table top needing extensive veneer repairs to the top. The client’s instructions were to remove the original burr walnut veneer and reveneer again in Burr Walnut. I normally wouldnt undertake such drastic work to a period piece but this is what the client requested. The above image shows the table pre restoration. In addition to the top veneers, the table was missing its basket and sliding frame – the frame sits just below the drawer and pulls out with the basket attached. Also, some missing beading needed replacing.
