The Cross House
I have a wood mystery.
Take a look at the image below:
NOTE: when I took the image I had not finished stripping off the old finish. It now looks much neater.
Look at the gouges. They mystify me.
If I were to toss out a guess I would say that my trim is mahogany with a faux finish. This finish was then varnished.
After I removed the varnish I was left with the faux finish.
However, this makes no sense as stripping off the varnish would have also stripped off any faux finish.
But then what is that darker wood lurking under what sure looks like a painted, faux finish?
I am stumped. My eyes tell me one thing while my brain argues with my eyes. I hate when my eyes and brain argue.
