I don't think I'd do a thing to change the surface, just some spray polyurethane to pull out its warm, amber color. Posted: 5:15 pm on January 27th

KerriB writes: Looks to me like an old coat tree and those half rings are for umbrellas.. I can't see the top of it very well, maybe it's missing a piece where the coats were supposed to hang? Great find..

Merry Christmas! Posted: 6:30 am on December 25th
