    Getting started on a big fire job restoration.

    All heat damage mainly to shellac finishes. Just finished deodorizing in the Ozone room. Will start the stripping Monday.

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

    Looks like a pretty big job indeed. That ought to keep you out of trouble for a few days, Dave.

    Wow, that is quite a haul, how much of it was totaled?

    Had a friend with a ozone machine for car restoration, amazing what that thing would do for the interior smell of 50 year old car that "just came out of a barn".

    Just the back addition where the fire started. All this stuff is heat damage . Still need to get a few pieces one being an old player piano.

    Will you have to do new upholstery as well, or can that be cleaned and replaced?

    My upholster will be a little busy. The last piece came out of the stripping room today. We'll begin sanding and finishing next week. I have a few items that need special attention. Getting the deep smoke damage out of Painted antique lacquer clock is one that will take some extra hours.
