A Bannister And A Pair Of Yokes

bannister, yokes, tung oil finish
There once was a barrister and two yokels ...

No, that's not right.

There once was a bannister and two yokes!


All were discovered during my Shopping The Shed excursion.

Here they are - a bit rusty, a bit crusty, and a bit dry.

What to do, what to do.

Bring out the tung oil and start feeding that dried out wood.

Go over the metal parts too.

See the difference in the yoke pieces?

Well, I probably should have put them on something other than a milk crate to photograph.

But believe me there is a difference.

Look at that bannister - all rich wood with chippy white paint.

I did have to use several coats of the tung oil.

I know all of you are drooling over my nifty little what-cha-callit.

It is a heater I use for a table on the patio.




No, I am not including this in my cleaning spree.


The bannister and the yokes have departed for the booths.

More transformations of the junk, er, treasures I found while shopping in my shed coming up.

See y'all!
