So I went out to visit the sewing cabinet armed with an oil-based polish, rags and water. I wiped and cleaned and polished. And then oiled various parts of the wheels and treadle so that they spin freely. I'm pleased with the results!!
Here she is!
Isn't she a beauty?
I'll apply more coats of oil polish tomorrow and let that bone-dry wood soak it up!
I'll give it a day or so to air out and then start playing with display arrangements.
See you soon with more updates!
