Old Baltic is tough, it's often covered in old Black Japan (a thick tar like substance) from years and years ago. In many cases old Baltic needs repairs to be carried out prior to sanding and finishing, plus it normally houses lots of staples and tacksfrom floor coverings from years gone by."So", you ask yourself, "Why the hell do you do them?" Well, to be honest, job satisfaction is the answer. There is nothing quite like the challenge that old Baltic Pine throws at you, so therefore, there is nothing quite like the satisfaction of seeingthe end results - a just and fair reward for our efforts. Along with that there's also the dough we get paid, but that's a whole other story, of course.By taking the time to browse through the Baltic Pine pages I'm pretty sure you'll see why we get so much out of restoring them.Clint.
