WELL, THEY ARE'NT REALLY NEW -just like new. These benches used to sit in Bellingham's downtown 30 years ago. The city removed them years ago and dumped them at the Park Dept. yard. Doug Starcher and I rescued a couple, John Servais raised the money to refurbish them and Doug and I spent last tuesday assembling the newly powder coated cast iron benches with Ipe slats. They look beautiful and we will install them in Fairhaven next week. Can't make ukes and write history books every day.
I got tired of working on necks and decided to glue on the pinecone peg heads.
And here they are. Now they are beginning to look like pinecones. Lots of shaping, sanding, finish work but they are getting close. Should have them ready to so in a month.
