After: This bench had seen way better days when I started working on it, back in June. It was naked, rotting wood, abused by the Nebraska sun and winter. So now it has paint protecting it and Scott antiqued it. It looks beautiful and like it’s been around forever. I love it. Turns out I never would have been able to get it back together by myself. It required lots of improvisation.

I guess he thought, “Long as I have all these big, wood-working tools out, I might as well do EVERYTHING.” And he did!
