A. Brandt Ranch Oak Roundup!


I was surfing Craigslist as usual when I came across a posting for a large set of A. Brandt Ranch Oak. The set included a table, 9 chairs, mirror, 2 end tables and two table lamps. Then, a couple of days later I found someone selling a dresser with mirror.


I posted about A. Brandt Ranch Oak a little while back (link). Ranch Oak was produced from the 1930’s-1970’s. I am such a fan of this western themed furniture. I love the chunky hand scraped look of these pieces and the white furniture wax buildup that was intentionally applied to create the pickled effect.


What I love about this furniture is that it is solid oak. Because of it being solid, when it gets a scratch, I just have to sand it and refinish. The dining and end table tops need to be refinished, but nothing major.


This table expands to a tremendous length when you pull the extensions out on each end.


I love the handles carved out on the chairs.


I ordered some pickling wax to refinish all these pieces. It appears to be a straight forward process that I will blog about once I receive the wax.







Here is a grainy illustrated image of the table out of the brochure:


This furniture will be around for many years to come because it was built to last. No IKEA particle board here! I was told by a friend of ours that the actress Diane Keaton has a huge collection of Ranch Oak, but I haven’t been able to substantiate that information. Now I am on the hunt for additional pieces!

  5. would you mind telling me what you used to stain the tables when you refinished them? I have a ranch oak tile top coffee table that’s been neglected for years, and when I hit it with some mineral spirits, I discovered the finish was essentially gone. I put some paste wax on it so it wouldn’t dry out, but I’d like to try to restore it as close to its original color as possible (which is still visible on the legs).


  6. My father was an Ethan Allen furniture store owner. He has several Ranch Oak pieces of furniture in his house he has a blonde Ranch oak entertainment center and a ranch oh yellow Uphostery chair with the dark wood ranch oak frame. He also has a light oak bedroom suite and we are wondering how to get the prices to resell these now any help with this would be appreciated thank you.


  7. My grandma had one of these tables. Been searching years for one but it looks like I am too late.
