The Workshop: trash or treasure 3

My last words to you from the workshop were as follows: Now I scrub.

Scrub, indeed. Then sand.

["Scrubbing involved elbow grease"]

["New sandpaper stapled to squared-off lumber"]

["24 cubbies x 4 sides each = lots of work"]

["Oh, it's drying time again, you gotta leave me"]

One will always face a dilemma when working with old lumber. Dust and grime hides patina. You have to know when to stop cleaning.

How did I do? Time will tell.
