Hello,

My name is Alan and I have been asked to assist you!
I am a Certified & Licensed Insurance Adjuster, Accredited AOA Appraiser, and an IRS Qualified Appraiser. It will be my pleasure to put my expertise, libraries & resources, and experience in the field to work for you.

JustAnswer has just sent me your question regarding your wood table you are refinishing. Thank you very much! I believe I will be able to help, but first I have to get a little more information from you.
Why is the one area to dark do you know? Can I see a picture of what it looks like please in the area you are talking about. Did you sand and prep the whole table or just that area? What all have you applied in that area just Restore and finish? Are you talking about the product made by Howard is this it?
