I was able to restore this table that was surely headed for the garbage. I had to re fabricate a majority of the table the feet and legs are completely new. I was kind of disappointed with the color but that’s what the customer wanted so that is what they get.

I was going to compliment the results. But if you don’t like it, then I’ll back you up. Your work is exceptional.

well now we see why you spend time in the dump .
do you bring a bag as an excuse to get in so you can cruise the place ?
looks good , and the price is right .
