    An older-than-dirt toolbox that I unearthed from the bowels of the shop. Ron says it was his grandpa’s, and estimates it to be 75 - 100 years old. Cleaned out the spider nests and cobwebs and scrubbed decades of accumulated grime away, then clear coated it and added hairpin legs to bring it into this new century. Voila!! Trendy side table!!

    It amazes me Ronni when you see something others would throw out and you make something useful with it. You have wonderful talent.

    Nice rescue job Ronnie!! I bet the box appreciates the refurbishment and upgrade.
