I have done enough of this very thing over the years so I know exactly what you are in for and I do not envy you but in the end you will have a beautiful desk! If your oldest decides to reclaim it, tell him no way man, you left it behind! Nice of your wife to volunteer to sand?

This is a wonderful project. All the history and love that will go into it will be amazing. I am glad you decided to share the process with us, as it is interesting to see it being transformed. I agree with Erwin. When your son wants it back, say no way! We will be watching with interest to see how it comes out!
