At last the work on the Alan Peters sideboard is finished. The doors now close, the drawers slide smoothly, the rear leg has been repaired, the dents have been steamed out, the scratches removed and the whole thing refinished with five coats of Skelton Peacock Oil.
The recycled Cuban mahogany came up really nicely with the initial deep red colour settling down to a lovely rich red brown.
When it first came in the Honduran mahogany was the same faded colour as the Cuban mahogany and it is great to see the subtle contrast which would have been apparent when new. The sideboard will be going to auction next year, I'll update with progress on this.
