We all get called upon to just plain fix this or that, right? And I take it as a monitory compliment but for friends I cheat a bit. This Phone settee? Came in needing a new top. The original was warped and nothing I tried would make it flat again so find some wood to look good that I have. Brazilian Cherry!!!
How to router the groove for the curved ply sides? Router table yey!
The chair? was climbed upon by 5 yr grandson and fell apart. So my neighbor brought it to me to fix.
I gave up on the original top and made what you see here. Minwax early american stain and then Teak oil.
The owner put this in the trash and will flip when he sees this. He and his wife bought this together many years ago and now that she has passed, not to mention that he has cancer, I hope to make someone’s day with this project.
This kind of project means a lot to me.
I’m valuable, I am needed and I can give!
I have a life, and wood working is a huge part of it!
They say that I will get a few chickens for it!
