the best feature of woodworking is simplicity of making friends happy with some simple projects and it will be more interesting for nostalgic objects.

one of my friends took me this old and lovely coffee table to strip finish and rejuvenate it.
the finish was too old and it was easy to remove with sanding and after that i applied some coats of hand rubbing varnish.

when I was finishing I thought it’s not important what techniques we use and how complex they are but thinking about how techniques will tie with happiness of people.

after finishing I was impressed with hidden beauty of its wood and rays.

as you see she decorated it with a clock that captures its beauty both physical and emotional in time.

I was happy so I wanted to share it with you.

Some jobs are not about the money. Lots of times its the satisfaction of turning it back into a nice beautiful piece.
OR even just creating something that people look at and go WOW did you do that. Pride !
