I recently had an oak table refinished, solid oak cross-cut

Customer Question

I recently had an oak table refinished, solid oak cross-cut grain, wonder about the estimated value
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: well it is pedestal round table, was built to have leaves but don't have them. it is shorter than standard height and greater diameter than typical round table.
JA: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: I recently had an oak table refinished, solid oak cross-cut grain, four feet solid oak. The person working on it sawed the feet off (his idea for raising the height), he re-attached them but now it has seams. he wants to charge me 750 for the job. I need to know how much he degraded the value with his mistake.
