What is scrubbed pine? How was it typically prepared and finished? Milk paint? Distress the top to make it look old, worn, and abused? How to do that? How to finish it so that it looks authentic?
Company boards: These attached to the ends of the table top and were supported by slide out arms beneath the top. How were those arms constructed and secured (i.e., joinery). Sagging at each end was a problem or not? Was this design a precursor to what we now know as an extension table with the leaves inserted in the center?
Thanks in advance.
