Today I repaired some damage to this black lacquered table for my designer client Jenny J Norris Interiors. The top consisted of 4 large stone panels, that fit into place on a hardwood base. It had gotten damaged in shipping. Each panel weighed about 50 pounds. There were a few scratches, and chips, and also a moisture ring. I filled the damage, matched the black, and then managed to buff out the other marks with a lot of elbow grease. I’ve honestly never worked on lacquered stone before. I like the quality of the shine on the pitted and mottled surface, which manages to show the best qualities of both materials.
The water mark came out more easily than I expected because the piece had been restored prior to this, and the top layer of lacquer was not bonding well, so I simply buffed off the new layer, and it disappeared.
Large area of moisture damage
Chips along edges
The end result was a much smoother shinier surface, and all the clouding from the old lacquer, and all the impact damage was reversed.
