Thanks Glenn! Can't wait for spring so that I can "Restore" my Mom's treadle. I want her to be beautiful again. Do you have any tips on cleaning the iron on her?
Thanks again, Glenn. Another great tut from "the Skipper." :)
Tropit thanks for finding this. Glenn thanks for the tutorial. This might be just what I need for the Singer 27 treadle I'm starting on. There's some veneer that really can't be saved but this should clean up the rest of the wood quite nicely.
Does anyone know what type of veneer this
is? I have to replace part of it. I think mahogany but my husband says it's oak only to find
out he has a sheet of oak in the garage and I think he's saying that so It will get used up.
While we're at it any guess on stain color.
Perhaps we are both wrong. Read this interesting link about Singer and it's cabinet factories. If your DH is into wood he should find it interesting also.
Thank you Glen for your restoring formula I have used it several times now. I have one question about the cleaning method, should it be don before or after I have glued some pieces back together. I have been cleaning with solution 1 and then gluing. Cleaning up after the glue has dried and then going on with 2 and 3.
Some of these guys are so grungy they have to be cleaned before hand.
