Just finished the repairs, refinished and put this old chair back together. Found out it was made by P. Derby and Co in Gardner, MA which closed in 1935 - so it has an amazing history.
Repairing and cleaning up another sweet find at the dump. I'm telling you, I'm loving making that weekly trash run. #trashtotreasure #onemanstrash
Got the chief's hat box wrapped up and ready to ship out! Even threw in a concealment compartment for good measure.
Hat Box making good progress. Figured out how to laser engrave the glass and so far I am very pleased with the results.
