Amazing Restoration of Oak Chest of Drawers

This solid oak chest has seen better days. It apparently had been painted purple some time ago and now was showing signs of wear. This grand old lady was in need of a total refresh! I stripped the paint to find beautiful oak wood grain! The video shows my work and contains no narrative since I believe everything I did is apparent.
