How do I save these benches with rotted legs?
we finally had a nice spring like weekend in upstate NY! I went through our sheds and under our porch to see what the previous owner had left. Besides two lawn mowers (yes!), there’s some sling chairs from like the 70’s (which I’m definitely going to update later), and I pulled out some wooden benches from under the porch. My plan is to clean them and re-stain so that they look new. The problem is that the legs are rotted, most likely due to moisture (I think). Is it worth it to try and fix it by cutting off the legs? Are there any rubber caps that I can put on the legs so this doesn’t happened? currently I have the benches on their sides so the legs can dry out as much as possible.
