This desk is so pretty. Another military mahogany desk, this one is a bit newer and smaller than some I have done. It was in pretty good condition when I got it, without any major repairs needed. It was quite scratched though, and I did forget to take before pictures. It was also missing part of one handle. Fortunately I had one that was a very close match, can you tell which is the replacement handle? After a light sanding I applied a couple of coats of Minwax Poly Shades in mahogany. The top is the laminate type which is nice for easy care but is really not refinishable. I have found that by rubbing a bit of Old English Scratch Guard on it you can at least darken any scratches and they blend right in. in. It only takes a tiny amount, wipe off any remaining excess. I am delivering this today!
