Reworked an old Sheridan for a buddy.
« on: March 02, 2021, 08:07:03 PM »
I found this on CL a few weeks back but was too busy to get it so I passed it off to a buddy. He had Mac1 reseal it and I took care of the wood. The pictures are not the best. The before are from the ad and the after he shot on the bed of his truck after putting it back together.

Before.

Nice finishing job. What did you use?

The first time I hit it, I missed. The second time I hit it in the same place.

Nice finishing job. What did you use?

Nothing fancy. Sanded up to 1,000 grit. For color a mix of Danish walnut and BLO. Finished with four or five coats of TruOil.

These old Danís are easy to refresh. The original finish is on top of the wood so a quick sanding takes it off without changing the shape.
