I hear that very often...they do not make that any longer. It is true that we live in a very fast going and disposable world, but it is also true that there are many choices for anything we purchase these days - and that includes the same quality as in old days.
So you just got your new (vintage) furniture lovingly restored by us; the next step is to make sure you know how to keep it looking that good.
The good news is that it is not complicated; I always compare applying Danish oil to the furniture to applying lotion on your body - both do not require training or long practice:-).
If Kijiji sellers say their furniture is made of solid teak, it just does not make it true… Buyer beware.
This is a common misconception, fueled even more with sellers on popular classifieds as Kijiji or Craiglist claiming their MCM furniture is made of solid teak (or rosewood or walnut). In fact, however, almost all high-end Danish furniture (not including chairs, legs, handles, and frames) is made with teak or rosewood veneer placed over less expensive wood like pine or plywood or particle board.
