Wonderful save! I’ve never heard of finishing wooden products w/olive oil; but that’s super. Really like the outcome. Did you re-upholster the seat also? Also adds nicely to the Taxes cut-out and Ranger’s star. Good on ya!

Uhmmm, Olive oil will go rancid after it ages. You might want to wipe it down with acetone and start over.
