Restoration Project

I am working on a new project. My wife Gloria dragged home a beat up antique piano stool (quite) a few months ago and said, “Here, restore this…” Ha! Little realizing I wouldn’t make it top priority. Well, maybe she did, as she knows me too well.

So today I took a look at it and decided now or never. I proceeded to test the surface finish which was absolutely horrendous and noted all the cracks and flaws. Yep, it was going to have to be a total teardown and rebuild.

It is very old so I was certain it was put together with hide glue. It is. That means I could take it apart like my long departed grandfather had shown me when I was a young lad. He loved to restore old discarded wood furniture.

There is a report over on Ramblin’ Dan’s Workshop of the tear down.
