Furniture Medic by MasterCare Experts Restores Acacia Wood Tabletop and Bench Imported from Thailand
The ideal piece of furniture can sometimes be elusive. Some people search far and wide for the exact piece of furniture for the perfect application in their home. Sometimes this search can be done with a trip to a few different stores and maybe an antique shop. In other cases, people find the exact piece of furniture they were looking for halfway around the world.
Acacia Wood Table Imported from Thailand
At Furniture Medic by MasterCare Experts, we recently had a customer reach out to us to restore a table and bench that her and her husband had imported from Thailand. Our customers had an idea of the type of table they wanted made from acacia wood, but could not find such a table in the U.S. While on a year long backpacking trip, they found pieces of acacia wood for a table and bench in Chiang Mai, Thailand. They chose the wood pieces themselves and marked them with chalk so they would be cut to the right size.
Picking out and marking the wood for their table and bench was the easy part. The challenge came when it was time to import the table and bench from Thailand to the U.S. The furniture went through quite a journey is it was shipped by boat from Thailand to L.A., by train from L.A. to Chicago, by truck from Chicago to a warehouse in Bolingbrook, then to O’Hare Airport for chemical treatment, then finally delivered to the customer’s home. The cost of moving the table and bench from Thailand was more than the cost of the furniture itself.
Wood Furniture Restoration of Acacia Table
When our customers needed to have their imported acacia wood table and bench restored, they brought them to our experts at Furniture Medic by MasterCare Experts. We restored the table and bench to bring out the unique, natural beauty of the acacia wood. Our craftsmen were able to smooth the table down to the bare wood and repair any minor imperfections in the surface. We then applied a water-based factory finish that we felt brought out the best natural qualities of the acacia wood. As you can see in the pictures, the natural beauty of the wood really comes through to make this table and bench truly stunning pieces.
Our expert craftsmen take pride in providing wood furniture refinishing and restoration services that bring out the best natural qualities of the wood.
