    once again another fun project

    in bad shape; Walnut 2 piece secretary. This will be another Tong oil hand finished job, but there is a ton of repairs in front of me. Everywhere I look there is missing , cracked damaged trim. Plus the entire piece needs to be taken apart and re-glued, That's Jarrod job He's the best at keeping everthing in order and numbered.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    COOL! Now will you (or Jarrod) have to steam the joints to get it apart then break out the glue pot?

    Looking forward to seeing it all back to its original beauty!

    Rich as hot as it is , I can stick this thing out on the dock and splash water on it and it will fall apart then work on each piece and break out the glue pot. Reminds me I am in need of making glue again.

    This one is back on the finishing table finally. I have it sealed and 1st coat of tung oil applied. Jarrod did a fantastic job with the repairs and making new pieces that were missing.
