Jen bought two of these chairs last summer and we've been waiting until the evenings were cool and dry to start restoring them. It is pretty fun to sit in the late afternoon/evening sun, sip a beer and scrape the old varnish off of these chairs. The smell of the dusty, stripped varnish is nostalgic for me, smells like Bob Klein's barn near Ionia, MI. We used to go there with my parents as kids. Bob has just piles and piles of old furniture stuffed into a couple of barns on his property, you just need to dig through for the good stuff.
Anyways, the chairs have quite a bit of detail, and they need quite a bit of work. I'll periodically post some pics so you can see how the work is going.
