Mahogany bar, Entry piece, Small buffet....You decide!

    I love this piece!  I love mahogany anyway, but I think it is stunning.  I bought it from a friend a while back.  I'm pretty sure it is another military mahogany piece that came from one of the nearby bases.  Sturdy and beautiful, these stand the test of time and I almost always prefer to refinish these beauties instead of painting them.

    I was especially happy to find out this had rubber wheels and rolls easily from place to place.  I think the original shelves were replaced with plywood, so I lightly sanded and refinished them also.  I usually use red mahogany, but this time used Minwax Bombay Mahogany Polyshades.  It is really dark, and I think it really has an elegant look.  On top of that I used a fast drying poly for protection.  I am really happy with the way this turned out.  It will
be headed to the cabin tomorrow!
