This roll-top desk was broken and had a very worn finish. Learn how to patch broken wood, match wood stain, revive an old finish, and re-glue parts to restore wood furniture. We teach the skills of furniture repair, so you’re going to learn something new in this video.
This desk has a broken pedestal that has come apart. It needs to be disassembled to repair a piece of wood that broke off. Watch how Scott prepares and patches in new wood to glue in a new piece. He then stains and finishes the wood to match the existing wood.
The desk top and the top of the gallery have a damaged shellac finish. In many cases, applying a new coat of shellac is easy… but this desk turned out to get messy. The old finish reacted to the new finish. Scott shows tips and techniques to deal with challenges like this.
Bonus – there are some old treasures hidden inside the roll-top cavity.
