We will always do our best to point out any damage or wear and tear however sometimes things may get overlooked, as we often like to keep pieces in their natural state, as we find them. We feel that some dents, knocks and wear just adds to the history and charm of a piece. Many wooden antique pieces show signs of woodworm. Where an item shows signs of worm (small holes) we will always point it out, and ensure it is treated.
We try to describe our items as accurately as possible and post clear photos taken from several angles. Please feel free to ask any questions, or request any additional measurements or photographs.
Sandblasting furniture takes the wood back to it's natural grain and colour, it also brings out the texture of the wood. After sandblasting we finish our pieces with a clear wax.
A sandblasted article is therefore NOT varnished and is NOT waterproof. It will require some extra TLC. Please ensure any liquid spills are dried immediately. If the wood becomes marked or discoloured, gently sand once dry and wax the article with clear wax. There are many waxes out there.
