With restrictions on weight bearing and overall lack of mobility, I have to limit the projects that I can take on. My Tea Table .. (Cha Ji) is working well. With a little over 3 years of use the top requires to be reconditioned.
This weekend Andrew set up the Tea Table on saw-horses that allowed me access to work on it. Not an ideal setup but functional for a monopod. Also my workshop is out of order due to some minor construction in the back half. Initial prep work is complete .. Easing the corners with a 1/2” round-over bit some hand blending, stripping the old finish and sanding with medium grades.Now I’m ready for final surface preparation .. Fine sanding and scraping .. then application of; what I hope is my long term finish.Normally I prefer a Japanese influence of sharper edges on furniture. But, as we have a little one, best I soften sharp edges etc. More in Part B
One More item to literally work on: My 1984 Team USA Olympic Road Bike by Ben Serrotta. This bike was not raced in 84 but carried as a spare .. re-painted and sold commercially. Once I’ve figured how to mount and dismount with “one functioning leg” it will be my main recovery vehicle .
