The top had to be taken off, then those two planks had to go through the table saw so they would match again. Then the hubby made new dowel holes and put new dowels in it and glued it, clamped it, nailed it, and then set it aside to start work on the body. We pretty much had to do that with the rest of it too. We pulled out the pipe clamps and the brad nailer and a lot of glue and started a two day repair job. Finally we were done with repairs and I could start the make over. I stained the top in dark ebony because there was a liquid ink stain that had been spilt on it ages ago, it was too deep to sand off so I matched the stain with stain.
Thanks so much for stopping by I love your comments and followers as well.
