Refinished Fire Station ‘Ethan Allen’ Kitchen Table

It is done!  …. that’s, the Fire Station Kitchen Table

The Fire Station Kitchen Table mentioned in the previous post has been completed and put back in service for this Fire House’s Fire Fighters and EMT’s.  It was a challenge, but one well worth it, as it is not everyday that someone can do something special for folks who put their lives on the line to save lives and/or peoples’ property.

Here’s The Refinished Fire Station Kitchen Table:

     Please note that this table is over 35 years old.  It had been refinished sometime in the past and also had the two end leaves permanently bolted in place to make the table 100 inches in overall length.  The chairs were recently purchased new to closely match the kitchen’s cabinetry … and that was a goal for the refinishing of the table (i.e. to closely match the cabinetry and the new chairs).

The Table Before Refinishing:

As you can see in the picture, the table was much lighter in color (more so if seen up close).  It was, however, in fairly good shape for it’s age and the picture shows it, …but upon close examination, there were definite signs of age and use.
In addition to refinishing the table to match the new chairs and cabinetry, the Fire Chief wanted the Fire Station’s emblem to be laminated into the center of the table top for posterity.  You can see it in the top picture, but obviously, you cannot read it.  So….

Here’s an up close picture of the Laminated Emblem:

Refinishing this table was a challenge, but one that Just Fine Tables will never forget.  We should all be thankful for our Fire Fighters / EMT’s and Police Officers each and everyday.

Got to go for now ... Just Fine Tables has several Farm House Farm Tables to complete and time is running short.

    The web is amazing! I have inherited the same table recently and am going to have it refinished. Can you share what an approximate cost would be to refinish it? Thank you
