I found this pair of Heywood Wakefield 304 end tables in a furniture resale shop located in a small town near my home town.These were not super cheap but I have been watching these since October and was able to get 15% off so, it was a good deal. I can't believe these stuck around for so long; A pair of homemade HW 308 knock offs sold out of this shop for twice the price of this real HW pair.
They look really nice from a distance, and even pretty close they look decent. There is nothing horrible but, they have some finish issues as you can assume on a 50 year old piece of furniture.
This is the left table
Here is the right table.
They both look pretty nice, right? I could probably leave them as is, with a little cleaning, and double my money. But... "dum, dum, dum" (cue ominous music)
The finish on the left table is pretty good with just a small spot of wear. Unfortunately this table has a small crack on the front of the second tier and a fine crack on the top tier. I'm hoping that the crack of the 2nd tier is just in the finish and that the top tier crack is a board joint.
The table on the right has the most wear but no cracks.
Yup, A couple more Hey Wake refinishing projects for the summer. It's going to be a sandy summer, with no beach in sight, folks.
