After that, the workers performed overall restoration of the table, including repainting, carpentry restoration, etc.
Installation is the most important and most meticulous part of the recovery process. “We follow the traditional installation method. Old tables have a tenon and tenon structure, and the nailing method is different from that of modern tables. We pay great attention to it.
