Phew – worst of the dirty work completed!

It’s been a busy week!! After some lashings of varnish stripper, sanding, steel wool rubbing and glueing, the last three chairs have now been stripped and re-glued.

 

Just waiting for a delivery of my trusty wood filler to sort out some ugly screw holes and then a final clean up before these can be waxed.

I’m going to use a dark bees-wax to compliment the grain/colour of this oak wood, then I can get on with the upholstery…initial order of work; webbing, hessian base, bridle ties and 1st hair stuffing which I hope to complete by next week…here’s to another busy week!
