In my house we revel in using and reusing old furniture. One couch from Bob’s grandmother is about 100 years old and the coverings at least 50 years old. My mom’s couch is probably about 40 years old. But all fabric solutions eventually need refurbishing, that includes our couches. So Bob hauled up one old chair and started pulling it apart. Great wood, but obviously no pride in workmanship. There is still bark on some of the pieces for an armchair. Broken pieces of wood were nailed into place–a few more nails cover any problems. Yet still, one doesn’t see nice thick pieces of wood like that in modern furniture. So the question of the day is: What is Bob going to do with these pieces of furniture. I want him to reshape and show off the wood. He’s thinking about reupholstering the furniture. He’s doing the work so it’s his art project and his choice. What do you think?
