Specifically Broward county.

I collect older martial arts weapons (1980s) and would like to restore a few of them. Things like this.






Looking to basically get them stripped and refinished. Need a matching black for those items and a simple clear coat for those showing wood grain.

My concern is the cost of the restoration being more than the items are worth. I'm also just not talented enough to so it myself, I've tried.

Are you saying you can't learn how to do it?









.
Oh I probably could after a several more attempts and destroyed items. I just can't risk destroying these and I'd like to get it done sometime before 2016.

I really have made several runs at such projects and while I can stain and finish wood to an ok level, I just haven't mastered the art of "exactly like they were."
