I refinished this piece, and delivered it yesterday.
I had to cut the top apart and jointed it to get it to be flat.
From where it was , to where it is , it looks good to me.
The money shot was the top.. the other wood was less impressive.
Glad my wife saw it and said I would do it over for them. The woman was
going to paint it, which would have been a shame.
took a good look at your pictures, from one end to the other. Very,
very nice job. Great that you restored it saving it from paint that
probably would have had it tossed into the trash in less than a year.
I wouldn't be surprised but that turns into a good advertising piece.
The identical table is sitting in our entry SWMBO drug in from
somewhere. It's in far worse shape than that one started out at and
isn't even oak as a redeeming feature. I've not been able to get enough
of a vibe off it to even replace the top with something presentable...
My shop looks like a mess usually.
I try to keep my workbenches clear, but at times (during a project) I
lose the battle.
Then I clean up so I can repeat. I hate it when the bench is full and I
can't put work down.. so I try ... to avoid it.
Actually my floors had enough shavings recently that it started being a
problem. I have to use a dust pan or shovel when it gets that deep.
But I sweep, I have a floor sweep in the machine room, would like to add
one to my hand shop.
