A few months ago, I set out to get a large wood table off of CL for our patio, with the intention of putting a marine paint finish on it. I found this and paid next to nothing. I kept thinking 'There's something more to this table.' Now I realize it's a M-M Danish piece in dire need of refinishing and being brought in from the patio.
Anyone have recommendations on refinishing it?
Also, if anyone can tell me what types of wood they made this piece out of, so I can ID it- I would appreciate it.
Thx- MamaHahne

Update: I have finally completed refinishing the piece. The veneer was very thin in spots and took a gentle hand. I used a slightly redder tone to disguise any inconsistancies. It doesn't look too bad for my first go-round :)

    Nice! Check out this site:øller
    Teak or Palisander? Looks teak underneath. Bleached by the sun. Google "gume mobelfabrik table" and check out the colours there!

    So I've been doing some searching online. It looks like it's teak. And I've read that Watco Fruitwood Danish Oil is good, but it's not good for use with things that will come in contact with food. Anyone know about using tung oil or putting a poly coat over the danish oil?

    I had a dining room table very similar to yours with the same markings. It was a Niels Moller 1960's Danish Rosewood Dining Table by Gudma Mobelfabrik. My sister was going to donate it so I was happy to take it off her hands. What a great find! A couple of months ago, I sold my table in its original condition for $5k. Shhhh, don't tell my sister.

    hehehe very cool! And since I don't know your sister, I think you're okay.
    I'd love to get even $1k for mine, but not having a lot of luck trying to sell it so far. How did you sell yours?
