When we first found this 1960s Broyhill Brasillia Desk we were a little bummed out because we though it was too far gone to restore. Since we have revamped our workshop (more to come on that), we have a much bigger capacity to bring cool items back from the burn pile. Here is a before photo with Thomas adhering new veneer to the top edge.
Many of the joints needed to be cracked and re-glued, all of the surfaces needed attention as the wood was very dry, new veneer around the edges of the top, along with a totally refinished surface with a durable water based finish. One more item saved and ready for another 60 years.
The Brasilia collection was made by American furniture maker Broyhill and was inspired by the capital city of Brazil, Brasilia.
As we continue to increase our capabilities at the workshop we will be able to bring more of these unique finds back to life.
