Quite often family members bring me something that needs a lot of attention and say to me “I know you can do something with this.” And more often than not, I’m pleased as ever to take on whatever is brought to me, and bring it back to life.
But when my dad brought me three thick wood slices a while ago, I was down-right thrilled!
How cool are these things!
As they are quite old, and weren’t ever treated, they are pretty light-weight (for wood), and they were dry. Very dry.
So we cleaned them, and Dad applied several coats of lacquer. He lost count how many coats he applied.
They turned out great. And they fit perfectly on top of these end tables. But they don’t just stay on the end tables. I put them on the dinner table when we entertain to add a little height and conversation.
These wood slices wear a lot of hats around here, but I’ve got to tell you: every time I look at these things and even during writing this post, that rhyme comes into my head: “How much wood would a wood chuck cut if a wood chuck would cut wood?”
