Antique Furniture Restoration Forum?

farmboy1February 18, 2013

My taste in furniture runs toward antique, as my house is also an antique at 118 years old.

Most of the posts I see here are related to newer items. I'm trying to match/retouch the existing finish on an older sofa, shown below.

does anybody have any good suggestions for refinishing the section below, or a good furniture restoring/refinishing forum?

Hi Farmboy1,

I'd suggest you also asking at the link below, or at The Woodworking Forum.

I would try the Woodworking forumer here at GW. There are some very knowledgeable folks over there that should be able to help you.
