This project has been pending forever – we picked it up IDK around 2005 and it ended up sitting and the customer didn’t have room for it and gave it too us. In 2011 they decided they wanted it when they moved so we gave it back to them – remaining in possession of it. Then pending restoration we FINALLY got it into the queue and completed it this year. Sometimes projects just go like that, we had problems with our lathe, we got tied up in deadline projects, and this one had already after-all been sitting in storage for six years!

Anyway – Mike turned ALL of the legs and spindles as the originals were all damaged or lost in a move. Now self supporting we did the repairs on the back and the arms and back spindles. We also Jappaned the seat to renew it.

Once again – we have a bench! Straight forward enough.

Thanks – delivered this morning and our client seemed pretty happy. Odd – never had a piece sit for THAT long. I found the original photos and contracts from 10/31/2004 – delivered on 8/3/2013 … so 8 years and 10 months or so? Longest spanning project from start to finish that we’ve ever had with a client.

Of course my kitchen I started in 2000, it’s still not done … and I started a project carving that buffalo scene for my Sharpes rifle in I think also in 2000 or maybe 2001 and it ran through until 2008. My bar is also a Y2K err startup and that’s not done. Personal projects are just – well … get to them when I have a moment and that’s few and far between!
