Furniture Restoration Short Course (#6) – Hikaru.I

This week we started restoring the mirror stand! The teacher found this mirror stand for the class! First, we cleaned the mirror. It was very dirty, but I sprayed it with alcohol and wiped it down and it shined up in no time! He says that working in furniture restoration makes him good at cleaning. He also taught us how to remove stains from the wood! The basic method is to use a chemical called oxalic acid, but if that doesn’t remove the stain, he uses a stronger chemical. I thought it was difficult because not only the stain but also the color of the wood would soon be removed. We also painted the pillars, and I was very happy with how well it turned out! I am very much looking forward to the next class where we will complete the project!

今週から鏡台の修復を始めました!授業のために先生が見つけてきてくれた鏡台だそうです!まずは鏡を綺麗にしました。すごく汚れていたのですが、アルコールを吹きかけて拭いたらあっという間にピカピカになってしまいました!家具修復の仕事をしていると掃除も得意になるそうです。木に付いた汚れの落とし方も教わりました!基本はシュウ酸という薬品で落とすのですが、それでも落とせなかったらもっと強い薬品を使うそうです。汚れだけでなく木の色もすぐに抜けてしまうので難しいなと思いました。柱の塗装もしたのですが、とても上手くできて嬉しかったです!次次回の授業で完成する予定なのでとても楽しみです!
