I have a 40+ year-old walnut table, 3×5, that has only been oiled. It could use some surface cleaning and stain & scratch removal. I don’t expect to get it back to its original color.
I have been given an estimate of $1600 to do this job, and that seems way out of line to me. What do you think?
I’m not a woodworker; is this a job that I might do myself? I don’t want to wreck it. I’m assuming I wouldn’t want to do it in the dinig room — right?
