Restoration varies depending upon the condition of the show timbers, and the requirements of the table owner.
Preparation of show timbers may involve:
- Stripping and sanding to remove earlier polish treatments, or cutting polish back to the base to remove overlaid treatments
- Patching or replacing damaged areas of table mouldings or panels
- Steaming timbers to reduce or remove sizeable indentations
- Entire re-polishing of all repaired show timbers; or if the customer prefers, re-polishing of part of the show timbers and uplifting the remainder from the existing polish base.
