Revamped garden seat

Revamped garden seat

The lats on this were very old, bending and breaking down so T cut down, planed, sanded and varnished the hard wood sides of an old door panel to make new lats. He painted the frame with Hamerite. I think it looks lovely now. I am talking him into doing the other one

He has done a great job on your garden bench. I don't know H/B. What would you women do only for us men. How lucky are you's to have us, and what reward do we look for just a clap on the back and a big smile and if we are lucky we get a thank you as well. Lol

Great job Sheila! I have a message for your OH .... Please tell him to remember "what doesn't get done today MAY get done tomorrow .. start as you mean to go on, I say!"

I retired 7 years ago and my list just gets longer and longer each week ..... lol.

Sheila, these open gardens are nice, but do tend to generate more jobs for us lads. I keep telling my OH, I'll never be a scratch golfer if she keeps giving me jobs, that keep me off the course ....... She thinks I'm joking .. lol.

To much 'nervous excitement' for 'T' may not be good for him, take it easy on the poor lad ... after all he has done one great project this year!

Sheila, I wouldn't buy a used car from you .... If you take that approach to everything in life ...... LOL

I hope "T's" operation goes well ... I'm sure you'll be putting it to the test as soon as he's home <;~)).
