Re: Handmade Furniture

Welcome to the forum. Probably ebay, a local selling page on Facebook or gumtree would be your best bet for selling the furniture. For the rosewood you might want to post a few pictures to see if there's any interest, however you need to post a couple more times before you can post photos.

Re: 3 or 5mm stroke

I've not got an ETS, but have a mirka ceros with a 5mm orbit and have been very happy with it. Can use it all day long one handed with no problem. DX is also fantastic with the mirka abranet disks.

Re: New garage workshop table saw recommendations

£700 budget will get you a new festool plunge saw and probably a 1400 and 2700 track. Just make sure you buy a rip blade too if you are going to rip solid timber. If you are lucky you might be able to get a second hand festool saw and a midi extractor for your money which is probably what I would do...

Re: What finish is on this furniture

welcome to the forum. If, as it would appear, this is a piece of commercially bought furniture rather than bespoke, it will almost certainly have a sprayed lacquer finish which will be difficult to repair. You could try waxing it with something like briwax and seeing what it comes up like.

Just to add that the cracking shown in your first picture is quite common due to the veneer shrinking, but the bubbling is clearly defective veneering where the glue has failed. It can't be due to wicking as it is some distance from the bottom. If they won't play ball and you want to pursue it then ...
