Dipped Chair #1
This chair has recently been through a professional stripping process that involved dipping into a barrel of stripper and a heat applicaiton. I don't know much about this process but I have reservations about using this process. Would be interested in learning more about it. The wood is rough with broken fibers. The wood is raised. Will the texture match the other chairs?
Kling Furniture dresser (vanity) circa 1940s
