This was a 50 year old pew which was 9’ long and I fully disassembled and wanted to remove all the white paint. I also wanted to reshape the end sections and place a rounded look on the back. After cutting the edges and lots of sanding and removing over 100 material staples it was ready for reassembly and staining.

The before picture is picture four above which was at start of disassembly …

My wife selected old mahogany stain and it gave it an old look. Will try to insert some of the build pics also …...

Thanks guys – long as the wife is happy with it ! This had. few struggle areas but once past those it came together ok. Was worried on finish color but with a little blending it was ok.

(Oh yes cutting a straight line on a round object can be done with patience and sticky back tape ….))
