How do I know if this table is worth anything?
I just purchased this old table. The lady I bought it from said it was an old homemade Irish table that was over 4 generations old. I am wanting to make it into a dining room table for an old hundred year old home. I don't know if it is valuable or if it is just an old delightful table. I don't want to damage it by redoing it if it is a valuable piece. The top is rough after years of use, There are homemade joints and the underside is definitely NOT manufactured. It is a light yellow wood, as well as I can tell thru the sealant on the table top..I am guessing Oak..but I know nothing of Irish woods. There is absolutely no mark on the table, and it is more than evident that it is homemade. I would like to stain it a darker stain to go with the furniture that will be in the connecting room. I am country oriented, but can not make up my mind how to redo it. But, I wanted opinions on if this is something I should not redo first. Please help me out all you folks that know more than me...Thank you so much!!! I have other pics if anyone needs to see more.
