We had an old dining table that had been painted several times, kids initials carved into it, but generally in good shape. We took it to JC WOod to have it stripped and painted with a black lacquer look. After they stripped it, they called and said that we should come take a look at it, before we had it painted. It was a beautiful table made from a combination of mahogany, oak, and maple. It looks stunning. The pick-up and delivery service they provide is excellent as well.
