I have to wonder if the original oak, likely from an old growth forest, might not be able to be sanded and resurfaced.  You can hardly find century-old wood these days, and when you do, it’s often pretty good wood.  How nice it might be to keep the original wood upon which Marconi and associates once trod.   

My 2¢.
