One of the nice features of old furniture is the lovely patina that develops, As a piece ages, it mellows. The wood dries. The old finish deepens in color. The surface wood under the finish deepens in color. Good wood and good finishes age with grace. The entire effect is a rich, warm, mellow look. When you strip away the old finish, the mellow look disappears. No matter how good a job of refinishing is done, the new finish is still new, and looks it. The aging process must start ali over again.
