The D/R table is finished.  Spot repair - not refinishing - it's difficult to notice unless you really go looking for it.  The finish on top blended nicely - it's going out tomorrow and I'm glad it took up my table saw for two weeks.

Thanks for the nice words - you're right we almost make a living at this trade.  My compressor has been in the shop 2 weeks - new gaskets, value kit and rings - easy come easy go - customers don't think we have expenses.  I dropped the table at the warehouse this morning - they all came out to give their two cents - it did look decent even in the day light.  They were happy they saved a refinishing bill.

These chairs were finished up on Sat but one issue I won't overlook again are the wood edges where the decorative nails are attached.  Seems inevitable that edges will be cracked from a long line of nail heads piercing the grain along the same line.  I had to reglue 6 of the 8 chairs on their edges in the same place before I could reinstall the nail heads.  Next time I will add on a few bucks automatically -

This customer has a very large home - the D/R Table is about 15 feet long.  Antique barn wood and the leaves are badly cracked.  They want the cracks eliminated.  I suggested to make straight cuts on the table saw and cut away the cracks - this would make the leaf 4 inches less wide.  They didn't want to loose the width - I don't like to fill in cracks because who knows what additional movement will do but the customer said the cracks were like that for years and there hasn't been any new movement.  The cracks are from an inappropriately applied bread board edge.  I filled with expoxy 3/32nd below level and final fill with water putty - this way I could easily sand without going into the existing color. I also sealed the underside with amber shellac.   Touch up the fills with blendals, shellac, and satin lacquer.  This was a test to see how they like the result.  There are 5 more leaves to do.

My old IR pooped out and the repair shop couldn't get the parts.  Although after market parts are available the repair shop can't warranty their work using those parts.  The repair was going to be expensive and for a few hundred dollars more I got a new one.  3 HP - single stage - I wanted double stage but my electric wouldn't carrier that.  Went from 30 gallon to 60 gallon - smallest tank they make - probably will go off very seldom unless I'm painting with the spray gun.  Today I have to reconfigure the pipes - the funny thing is this compressor valve is pointed down so water can't run back into the tank - I will need a ball valve at the low point.  Of course my Wife saw this new machine and said it's not necessary my irresponsible arthritic old man whose almost retired but what can I sell it for when you're gone.

My neighbor who is a contractor came over to help me with the pipes.  The brass valve from the compressor points downward so we had to create a drip leg for water to drain if need be.  Anchored to the floor with tap cons and pipe strap over the legs.  It's good to go finally.

Went to a site - complaint was a big chip to the formica laminate at the base left side.  I asked the customer if I could take a piece from the back - they said have at it.  Cut out a section and overlayed the piece on top of the broken area.

I have an old Bulls Eye Mirror in for repair.  It fell off the wall because the upper section disjointed from the lower.  Nothing broken including the convex glass but there will be a lot of gilding retouching and gesso filling to make it look uniform again.  I have it glued up and clamped -

I took this motor off the old compressor.  The tank and the pump was shot.  Anyway I see it has a black and a white wire - the amps are 15 - 3400 rpm - but 3 HP.  Do you think this can run on 110 if I put on a regular plug ?  It was running on 220 before
