I bought this old solid beech school woodwork bench on ebay for £60. ($95)
Heres the start of bringing it back to life
The kids have knocked nails in to the top and repaetedly sawed into the edges.
Nails were punched below the surace at least 3/8 inch and plugged with mahogany dowl.
Holes were enlarged to solid wood and filled with glued in tapered dowls
Saw cuts recut with wider kerf sawblade and strips of hardwood gluedin
Thats as far as i got today as the dust extractor bag burst showering workshop.
I carried out some tools to start cleaning and thought the old tool junkies might be interested.
