In the Works

 The price was right on this old school teacher's desk!
 I went to work stripping the old finish...
 and stained it (above, a comparison of stain on one end
with the unstained top).
Also in the works....a solid table found curbside.
It has a lot of distress on the top.  I've hand-sanded it
and still can't remove the scratches...so we're thinking "keep it distressed"!

 In between keeping the lawn mowed
and my "regular" job (pastor),
I've completed some more projects.
This desk was the latest.
And I've got a few more in the works now!
Details will be coming!

This Past Week...

 Finished construction on Potting Bench III.
I've primed it and will leave purchaser to decide on further finish
 (if any).
 Meanwhile, at my wife's request, I cleaned off this chair bottom that I have been
 sitting on in the garage for sit-down projects.
After sanding it, I applied some Fromby's English Tung Oil.
She likes it and wants to take it inside the house!
