Hi all,

It's been a good while since anything was posted on this forum. So why not let us know about the DIY jobs you've been doing in the last few months.

How about discussing the jobs you enjoy doing, and those you just hate, even just to say hello.

I frequently check for any new posts, I'm sure others do too. It seems a shame nothing is happening. Rich has created a nice site here, so let's hear from you.

Current Minor Project -

Doing some furniture restoration of a Parker Knoll chair picked up at auction for next to nothing.  They are incredibly well designed chairs, and really comfortable too.

Removing paint by sanding.  Harder work than I had anticipated as it is all being done by hand.  Then treating the wood with Linseed oil.

Last step will be to drop it off at a specialist for reupholstering.  That step is beyond me.

Have to agree, those chairs are mega comfy. I'd have been inclined to break out the paint stripper gel and brush it on, doing 1 segment at a time. If going nuts is required, cover the whole thing, then steam clean it off and allow the wood to dry out overnight, as steam cleaning it wont penetrate right into the wood so much.
