  1. Looking forward to seeing the beauty you bring out in this one. What kind of chimes does this movement play?
  2. You finished with this clock yet? What are you going to do with all these clocks? Do you sell them after refurbishing them? I can't bear to part with mine... my kids will be inheriting the full lot!
  3. Beautiful Enfield clock!
  4. Love the deco look of this piece!
  5. Another beautiful job Paul!
  6. Very cool clock!!!
  7. Another fine job you've done! So glad you took me up on my suggestion to photograph your finished clock in natural light... the grain pops so much better! You do amazing work!
  8. What a stunning piece of furniture!!!
  9. Paul, were you able to save the original veneer or patch with similar grained veneer? The clock turned out very well!
  10. Beautiful work Paul!
  11. Beautiful clock! Is it working?
  12. Ha ha, Florida!
  13. Can't wait to see how this one turns out! Yes, veneer can sometimes be a nightmare when trying to find similar veneer woods to match. Sometimes I've faux painted wood grain to match, of course, you ha...
  14. There's some beautiful grain aching to come out of that piece... just needs some stripping, sending, staining and finishing
  15. What a stunning desk...looks to be from the arts and crafts movement period. The wood is definitely oak and the cut of the wood (quartersawn) results in the grain having flake patterns in it. Especial...
  16. What an amazing job you did with this piece!
  17. Do you have some after pics of your work on these pieces? The inlays and graining will be beautiful when stained no finished!
  18. Yup,can't wait to see what it will look like when your done!
  19. Well Paul, you did it again... you are a gifted artist and bring out the best of whatever you touch! Bryan
  20. It's upside down????
  21. Paul, the clock turned out beautifully. Try to use natural light when posting pics, it really helps to showcase the wood grain better. I love that you use the French polishing technique, I'll have to ...
  22. Greendog, you do amazing work, what a gift you have!
  23. I have a bedroom set very similar and after some research, found that the style is reflective of manufacture in the 1920's-30's. your friend is lucky to have most of the bedroom set together, this inc...
  24. Looks to be a late 19th century high end table as the veneers are breath taking and the swan figuring gives it an eclectic look. It was probably used as a parlor table, but not as a dining table as th...
  25. you do amazing work!
  26. This looks to be part of what was probably a full bedroom set...a nightstand in the waterfall deco style widely used in the 1920's-30's. the handle does not look original to the cabinet.
  27. French Art Nouveau chair, most likely made of walnut. Just beautiful!
  28. Please don't paint it. Shabby chic is a fad that will pass and would be a nightmare to strip if someone wanted to bring it back to it's wood grain.
  29. Absolutely gorgeous table!
  30. If you look closely the knob is there and the drawer actually opens so you can store spools of thread
  31. I have a bedroom set very similar that I restored, after some research, I found that it was produced in the 1920's.
  32. Wow, your find is truly amazing... please post pics upon completion!
  33. Your clock is just beautiful!
  34. Paul, I call this the killer clock because of it's wood grain....I have to tell you that it looks like Koa wood (which Has very similar grain characters and "moves when hit different ways by the light)
  35. No large and heavy pieces...
  36. Paul, just started following you on this site because I like the restoration work you do.. had to laugh though when you mentioned you went to clocks because they aren't as heavy as player pianos! My p...
  37. When I decide not to refinish a case, I usually use 0000 steel wool dipped in colored Briwax and buff the finish down, this product really brings out the patina in the wood.
  38. You do beautiful work!
  39. Great job!
  40. Gorgeous clock!
  41. The grain in this clock is killer!
  42. Thanks for your comments! I would say the desk is from the 1950's
  43. I have one very similar, keeps excellent time and the chimes are beautiful and rich sounding. When looking through the glass on my clock, you can see the maker's plate; "E. Lauffer."
