CHRISTMAS MEMORIES VERSUS TERMITES.
I uploaded some pictures of a christmas sleigh that a lady bought from us about 20 years ago. She has since passed away and her daughter wanted the sleigh restored as it had been sitting on the ground for a while and termites had got to it. Would have been fairly easy just to cut off the bottom of each side, use some biscuits and glue new plywood on, cut out the scroll work, paint, done.
But the daughter wanted to save as much of the original wood as possible.
So after some serious head scratching and quite a few hours I was able to restore it and not remove one single splinter of the original wood.
Christmas memories get to continue and with a little TLC it should be included in their Christmas memories for another 20 years or more. Sorry Termites….
