Got a tough question I’m trying to solve, figured I’d throw it out here for a general opinion.
Got an old oak office chair, seat and back and arms to it, all in a ‘pre-restore’/needs love state. Thing is, it’s just that piece. No legs underneath of it. I’ve been debating on trying to recover the piece or not, but I can’t think of what to do with it after I save it. Stripping it down for parts isn’t really an option either, nor is using it as fuel for the smoker ( it’s got bits of old finish on it). I don’t want to be a hoarder with it, but I hate pitching hardwoods just to the dump. I try to use every bit I can, or at a minimum give it to someone else.
Thoughts? Ideas? When do you decide “man… It may or may not be worth the effort. Let’s do this” or “I could, but nahh. To the dump it goes…”
Thanks for your insight. Always good stuff here at LJ’s… – Abe
