    Treadle Cabinet Refinishing Project

    A couple of months ago I got a 15 in a treadle, and the cabinet really needed refinishing. My DH took on the project, and he finished it in time for Christmas. Here's the project in order. One note: He finished it with Tung Oil, not varnish or shellac. It came out beautiful!!

    Janice, The cabinet looks beautiful! Your husband did an excellent job. I have used Tung Oil for a couple of my cabinets also, and I'm very pleased with how they look. Your stitches look great! Looking forward to seeing your first project from her. Enjoy!

    Great work--it just glows in the photos, very rich looking.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Now THAT'S beautiful! I have a cabinet in great need of re-doing, but it's flaking on the end and I'm not sure how to tackle it. I just LOVE the rich color of yours. Wow.
