Curch Pew RebuildApril 20th, 2010 in member junk
I bought an 8 ft. church pew that was cracked, falling apart, missing part of one arm, but had the perfect weathered green finish. I completely diassembled it (saved the square nails for reuse), cut it down to 3 ft. and reassembled it. I used the undamaged arm to trace a pattern and cut and sanded a replacement piece, then doweled the restored arm together. Not sure now what to do with the finish, try to match what's there, leave it as is, or repaint the entire pew and then distress it. I'm open to ideas???
