Restoring an old school desk

I refinished an antique school desk for a friend whose great great grandmother used it in the one room school house she taught at. My friend's grandmother stored it in a shed for decades and it was recently unearthed. Read more about how I learned to take it apart on my blog.

    Beautiful! I love restoring old wood. No matter what shape it is! This was great since it is personal.

    I have one of these on my front porch. I just recently put a sealer on it so the weather didn't mar it. You did a great job.
