It will be fun Jimbo. I've refinished and restored 3 or 4 dining room tables and chairs. Those legs will take some time to strip well, just be patient.

Wondering what I got myself into, good price great quality and good shape other than the finish

Sounds about right. My chairs were decent enough quality and came apart easily. I don't think my table is worth finishing though....

One word: TEDIOUS! 

Those look like much nicer chairs than mine, but I had some nice wood to use as new seats, so that was a big deciding factor on the restoration process.

Too bad you can't pull it completely apart and spin the legs on a lathe to make sanding easier....

Looking very nice so far! Next step: A full out chrisk basement shop conversion!!!

Yea I pulled the bottom rungs off but they way these are assembled I would probably do more harm than good, sucks but for a solid oak dining room set that will all done cost around 100 bucks? I'll deal with the tedious lol

Jimbo, what are you using to strip the old stain off of the wood? That stripped chair looks cleaner than new!

I can not believe that you got them to that level just by hand sanding. Beautiful wood Jimbo. They are in great shape, do you have a color stain picked out yet?

Thank you sir, trying to avoid stripper but might need to for the bottom rungs... Kind of split on a stain color, I like a golden mahogany, she likes a shade or two lighter, nothing too red though

That is alot of work!!

I'm not sure I would have the patience to sand all of that finish off like your doing without some sort of wood stripper first.

Nice job!! 

Me neither lol
