Rescued from curbside on trash day and refurbished in cedar. It brought in $125. for the center. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure. I used to see a few of these left at curbside but in the past year or so it seems that scrap metal collectors are out there quickly so it is hard to find them.

Nice restoration. Did you have to do much to the metal ends?

I’ve done this a couple different times – simple job, nice results.

You just did the right thing. +1 on that one man’s junk quote.

I’ll try cedar. I have three of these that need restoring badly! Thanks for the idea.
