ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

Two Antique Tables

I have a small wicker and bamboo sewing table with a hinged lid that was my grandmother's. It's in excellent condition but it's beginning to look "dried out".

How can I clean it? And, do I need to put any kind of oil or anything on it?

I also have a marble-topped table (about 2 1/2' x 4') with a carved wood pedestal base that was her's also. The 1" thick marble top is removable, and is in excellent condition. Unfortunately the pedestal is not. It's drab and dirty, and some of the joints are beginning to separate. How can I clean it without completely refinishing it?

I think it's oak, but I'm not sure. It has a dark stain finish (it comes from a house that was filled with dark Victorian-style furniture) that I'm sure would be somewhat lighter if cleaned.

Also need to know where to get information on reglueing the separations.

I hope someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Dee
