    It's just a piece of wood. Re-finish it yourself. It's not hard, it is fun, and you'll end up with something you can be proud of. Done several myself and have one word for ya': WATCO (Danish Oil Finish).

    code5- Yes it is not hard and it can be fun, but it does take a little practice to get the pores filled properly, apply the finish coats so that when the wood is held at a sharp angle the surface looks absolutely smooth, and then to properly polish the finish.
