Finally completed the black lacquer table and chair set.  This was quite a project as the wood was old,dry and in very bad shape.  Here are some pictures of the finished product and one of the chairs after some sanding .

This is one of the chairs - on the left that was in better shape

The table base was interesting and the two end leaves lifted out.

The table with front and back views of the chairs.

I am glad that this project is finally finished. Now I can get back to the steel covers that did not fit.  We are having the steel company ship us a unit so that we can take measurements the way we need to have them.  More fun coming.
