  1. Projects Vintage Cedar Chest

    I'm working on refinishing an old cedar chest that was damaged and very dirty. It had some copper plate hardware on it, and I can't seem to find the right search terms to find replacement plates. Where can I find these? I might be able to reuse them, but some of the tacks broke during removal...
  2. Tavern Table Renovation

    It was twenty years ago that the tavern table (poker table, card table, pocket table) shown in the picture above was pulled out of an alley shed set for destruction. Long (early part of this) story short, the top had come apart at the glue joints and was black from the ravages of time and...

  4. Refinished and Re-caned Chairs

    I was recently given three chairs which had been readied for trash collection after many years of abuse and neglect, not to mention a number of rainstorms. The person whom gave them to me was simply curious as to what I might be able to do. As you can see the caning on two of them was...
  5. Cypress Tables

    The wife's Cypress tables her dad made about 50 years a go. Yes the big one came to me in 3 parts. The finish was cracking and blistered.

  6. Recycled key ring holder

  9. Garden Benches

    Time for a face lift! Before After Long before Pam and I met, she purchased two outdoor garden benches. Over time, the heat and rains of Florida had taken their toll; the wrought iron was rusting, and the wood planks had deteriorated. I removed the old wood and then, using a wired wheel...
  10. First ever furniture refinishing project

    I had this side table and cedar chest I inherited from my grandparents. They are about 60 or so years old. They were painted a hideous blue with gold trim. Unfortunately I don't have a before picture of the table, but it was the same color as the cedar chest. I stripped both down to the...
  11. Morris chair restoration

    After completing my bathroom vanity and cabinet, I decided to work on a simple, quick project. Was I ever mistaken! What I thought would be just retying a few springs, replacing a spindle, regluing the carved additions to the chair feet, and reupholstering two cushions turned into a major...
  12. Gun stock refinished

    This is a project I did a few years ago. I picked up a Stevens Model 15-A .22 Caliber rifle at a gun show for $25. Beneath 50 years of dingy finish and abuse was some great grain.
