Antique elm coffee restoration
This little elm coffer come in for restoration after being left outside for a number of years. Thus had completely ruined the finish, turning the timber white and grey. At some point the hinges were changed for garden gate type, these were wrong and was replaced. After giving the box a sanded I applied some French polish before gently cutting it back with some wire wool and beeswax only. This brought out the colour of the timber .
