Here’s a little deviation from the garden. I spent most of the day today finishing up the restoration of a child-sized roll top desk. This thing has been passed through and used by four generations of my family. As you can imagine, it was a little worse for wear and due for a new finish. It took much longer than expected (what project doesn’t?) and required a significant amount of elbow grease but it’s finally done. Here it is with the very happy client.
