I met a really nice lady named Nancy who asked me to redo her antique desk for her. She brought it to my house and I loved it. I tried to buy it from her, but it was not meant to be. Instead we had to refinish it for her. I find antiques a bit tricky and this desk was no exception. The wood had to be handled with care and too much sanding could be disastrous. Here is the finished product and I think it turned out lovely.
