Old Workbench Rebuild

August 2008 - Bench Rebuild is Mostly Complete - actually completing something might set a bad precedent.

We were out crusing the antique malls about this time last year and my girls spotted a potential father's day present. It was what used to be a nice old bench but was in fairly poor shape. It's a bit low for me but when I mentioned it would be the perfect height for grandkids one day when we have some, my wife quickly made the purchase and the repairs began.

Dismantling

There were so many nails and screws embedded in the joints, in a feeble attempt to stiffen or strengthen the frame, that it wook quite a while to get the whole thing apart.


Reassembling

It took almost a year to get it mostly reassembled
