    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.

    What a gorgeous cabinet now that it is finished! You are one lucky lady!

    I use tung oil also for refinishing and it certainly does give a beautiful finish.

    Very lovely, I love the color of your natural wood. Do you know what wood it is made from?

    I have 3 to refinish but they will have to wait until the house and studio are built. Should be finished with that sometime this spring. I will have to do them myself as hubby is no good with anything done by hand. Bless his heart.

    Janice - wow it turned out great! I'm going to have to show these pics to my brother. He won't believe this is the same cabinet we picked up. Aren't you going to be using this cabinet for one of your other machines?

    Your DH did a wonderful job on that cabinet. I have several cabinets that need refurbishing but need to wait for warm weather so I can get out in the garage to do it.

    What a beautiful cabinet. I have one that I need to work on but have little experience with this. Do you have instructions and/or hints you would share so I can tackle mine this spring? Thanks.
