Just finished restoring this one electrically. I stripped the extremely thick gloss coating off of it using a heat gun and putty knife, it had major cracks all over the place. The veneer underneath is in decent shape, I am going to stain it a bit darker and use some grain filler to get as smooth a finish as I can. Just wondering what products there are to give this a gloss finish. I doubt I will be able to replicate the original, that stuff was on pretty thick, almost seems like a plastic polymer or something, maybe it was sprayed on in the factory. Any ideas would be appreciated. I do have some rub-on polyurethane made by minwax in a glossy finish, not sure how thick that would end up, maybe multiple coats...
