BEAUTIFUL Restoration of Brass Inlay Octagon Table

  • Beautiful Restoration of Brass Inlay Octagon Coffee Table
    These tables, which are decorated with inlay technique, are generally produced in Far East countries. India, Korea, Malaysia. I know this table in my hand was brought from Malaysia in the 1970s. Such inlaid tables are also produced in Turkey.
    The hinges of the table were steel and the paint had been stripped. That's why I painted them. The hinge screws are made of brass. Just cleaning them was enough.
    I recommend watching the video below to see how a real inlay master works. Truly extraordinary: • Brass Inlay in Wo...

    I find it really satisfying that pieces of art like this get restored. The amount of time it must take to create something like this definitely is a great skill to have.

    I'll admit, I was very skeptical about the potential results when I saw you rip out pieces of the inlay and shim the cracks instead of just using an epoxy or a filler, but the final results speak for themselves, and this project of yours yielded very satisfying fruits. Excellent work.

    Amazing restoration! I’ve stripped and refinished a few pieces, nothing this intricate and it’s an incredibly hard job. You made this piece look so fantastic! Someone will love that piece for years to come, hopefully, they’ll be more careful than the last owners. That piece is a work of art! Great job on your part!

    Your works is absolutely magnificent. I've been working on furniture for over 30 years, and this particular piece had my jaw on the the floor. There are not words big enough to use to explain how amazing this restoration was. Thank you for showcasing the work involved by a true professional.

    Somewhere there is a guy who made this masterpiece looking down on you and praising the way you made his pride and joy look proud and new again. What a beautifully elaborate table and the way you made it shine again is something to be proud of.
    I just wish you had more information about it and it's origins.

    You picked the perfect stain for this particular piece. Dark enough to allow the metal inlay to shine, but not so dark that the contrast is jarring. Warm, too, to complement the warm tones of the metals as well.

      If you use oxalic acid to lighten the stain, it's better to coat the entire top with the acid otherwise you might end up with a pale stain instead. Painting the entire top with the acid helps keep the bleaching effect more even while lightening the stained area.

    • Restomaniac
      Restomaniac  2 months ago +12

      You are right, after applying locally, it is necessary to apply to the entire table. I didn't show it in the video but that's how I did it.

      This seems to be from India since furniture with this kind of brass wire work is easily found here. He restored it with full conviction. We have an old sofa with the same kind of work. I wish I could find someone to restore that too, to it's original beauty.

    The table looks brand new and magnificent. I fixed many of these types of wirework things in the past.Old arabic flintlocks, tables etc. Most of the time they want the original patina so apart from sprucing it up a bit and repairing the damage, thats all they wanted. I love the bold stain you put on it and it really shows up the brasswork.. The work these old craftsmen put into these things deserves to be seen in its full glory...
