These 2 pieces were being handed down from a late Grandpa to his Grandson. Solid pieces but lots of scratches & some repairs needed. I started by cleaning the pieces, repairing & sanding them. Next I applied a slip coat of Mineral Spirits, & 2 coats of GF Antique Walnut Gel Stain, wiping back. GF High Performance Top Coat in Semi-Gloss was then applied to give protective flawless finish. Cleaned & applied Rub & Buff on handles.
