Restoring a water-stained tabletopEven if you forget to use a coaster, there's still hope.
Even if you have zero interest in furniture restoration, there is a lot to be learned from those in the restoration game. Not only are refinishers well versed in finishing techniques and products, but they also deal with construction issues that we “furniture makers” might never see.
I’ve been watching Thomas Johnson Antique Furniture Restoration’s videos for a couple of years now and I learn something every time I do. Tom’s patience when dealing with difficult problems is something we should all strive to replicate in our own shops. The way he deals with the water stains on this table is no exception—not to mention the way he dials in the color tones to match the existing finish.
Sit back, relax, and watch someone working on the periphery of what you do. I’m willing to bet you learn a lot!
