My Dad’s Roll Top Desk

This is the before and after of my roll top desk.  My dad obtained it during the 1930’s and used it daily till the 70’s.  The dark color is the result of
oxidation and atmosphere soil.  When I relocated to Michigan Blvd in 1988, Dad gave it to me.  I refinished it then and have been using it since.

It is a natural color, quarter sawn oak, as it was originally finished.
