Wood is so cool, I loves it. Your only limitation is your imagination and skill level. Which is why I didn’t build this one, Cousin Bob did way back in the day. The maple top is from an old portable dishwasher, they’ve got to plastic tops these days.
The problem? I last time I put a finish on it was over 10 years ago, probably closer to 15. Do you think sitting in the Meathenge Lab kitchens for those years it looks as it did when new? Ha! It really is quite nasty, if I do say so myself. So, today? Am going to yank the sucker, sand it and oil it back up. Yay for wood!
Will stop by later and give you the finished product.
ps – Updates available. Wish I knew how to format this !@#$% photographs so they behaved. Nope, they’re all over the place no matter what I tell them.
Holee crap, now I know why I didn’t attempt such a thing. It’s hard, it causes me effort. Effort is hard.
Tiny E and I got 4 sides done, but there are far more tops, sides and side of sides that need to be done. This Sunday project is moving to Monday ever so quickly.
I do have some nice stain though! Hang tight, it’s coming. xo, Biggles
UPDATE 5/26/2008 (next day):
It’s back in place, I actually had more time than I thought this morning.
