Restoration of Victorian chest of drawers continued....

Victorian chest of drawers now stripped

I have repaired the drawers after removing the brass drop handles and realigned the drawer bases to close the gaps, and stripped the old wax off using a caustic solution, and washed it all off with a steam cleaner.

When dry, I sprayed it all with an acetic acid solution to neutralise the very alkaline caustic, so this will allow it to dry nicely.

Next job, when totally dry is to do all the little repairs, fit the lower side panel back on, fill some of the exterior and repair the back.
