Here are photos of my Dad’s beloved bench. He spent quite a few hours sitting at this bench repairing old clocks, cleaning watches, etc. I remember a time when he was repairing four or five cuckoo clocks. What a noise they all made! However, Mom wasn’t exactly happy with all the noise, but we kids loved watching the wooden birds pop out. As I said in my profile, I’m not a woodworker, but would like to access the knowledge here about how to refinish vintage wooden photo frames, stains to use/not use, how to sand, etc. I mainly work with my kiln, melting glass, into art work and also creating jewelry (PMC and Metalsmithing). In some cases, regarding the glass art, I want to frame it. I really don’t care for the current wooden frames that are for sale in all the Hobby Shops. I search garage sales, resale shops, etc. in search of vintage frames. I was quite nosy yesterday and really enjoyed all the artwork I saw here on this site. WOW! The art you all create is unbelievable. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
