Monday, April 8, 2013 start a new project

...this one might take awhile...

I don't often admit that I am wrong.  And don't get the idea that I might admit it now.

I'm just saying...

This project is significantly more involved than I had anticipated.

I spent the day prying off many layers of veneer, sanding, sanding, and more sanding, and scrubbing the hardware.

Then I found this mess on the inside:

I happened to decide to pull off the veneer on the inside as well...THANK GOD I DID!

Those are BUGS that dropped out.  Dead bugs.  Carcasses.  Eggs.  Ewwww.

Disgusting.  Gross.  

I can't believe I almost put this piece inside my house before I tackled it.  

For that matter I can't believe I didn't abandon the project at this point.

It's gonna be a treasure.  I know it.  I am not wrong.  Yet.
