The Restoration of this table was done in such a way as to use the same materials that were used when it was built. The finish duplicates the technique used in the 20′s also – the rails have 10 clear coats and two coats of wax hand rubbed so as to give it a duller, richer finish. The rest of the table has 6-8 clear coats and the same hand rubbed wax topcoat. The pockets are exact replicas of the original. The Tables Cushion Rails. The cushion rails of the Medalist table are made up of a 3 ply body, consisting of three layers of woods of alternating grain glued together to insure the rails against climatic changes. The center layer of these plies is hard maple. This is the layer through which the cushion bolts are placed, and maple is used because it holds the bolts firmly in place. The top of the rails is covered with a rail cap of compound construction faced with solid rosewood. The rails are securely fastened to the table by invisible cushion bolts. These bolts are covered by blind cushion rail facing which is built up of 5 ply compound construction and faced with a high grade Butt Walnut veneer with fancy inlay. Modification of the Jumbo type. Built with heavy 5 ply compound sides on which is superimposed top molding of 6 x 3 3/8-in. Specially selected and scientifically kiln-dried lumber, tongued, grooved, and glued. Legs are double-strength glued and veneered stock. Rigidity is secured by fastening the solidly constructed sides into the legs with maple dowels and bolts of heavy metal, and still further rigidity is assured by means of cross stretchers extending from side to side and end to end of table. The wood surface of the Medalist is of handsomely figured butt walnut with fancy inlay, and hand rubbed to a dull finish.
