i quite like the shine on the smooth surface of it, Bill.
Bill Phillips: The stain has a satin finish which I found pleasing Ayush
Good job Bill,and the war is over....smile
Bill Phillips: Yes We took the bunting down and dismantled the Anderson Shelter
I think it looks great, Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks E. It certainly looks better than it did

It looks like a fine outcome to me, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I was quite pleased Ray. It is certainly an improvement....mind you that isn't saying much!

Bench restoration is a skilled craft, this looks good
Bill Phillips: It has turned out OK. It did look awful before
Actually, Bill, I think you can be very proud of this!!
Bill Phillips: I am quite pleased Ginnie. It certainly looks a lot better than it did!

You did a great job and don't you feel proud, Bill. Now you can sit down and relax and think about another project you might do, with the emphasis on "might" of course.... wink.
Bill Phillips: I have been spending a lot of time in the garden and really enjoying it. It has Neve looked so tidy!

Your own celebration, Bill. Hope you sat on it and had a coffee! You must be very pleased with the end result. It will last for ever - it looks very sturdy
Bill Phillips: I had a glass of wine! It is in pretty good shape considering it is over 20 years old

a wonder- wonderful bench! You can be proud of it! And Chris should be yellow of envy!
Bill Phillips: It has come out better than I expected Philine

It is now a golden oldie. Congratulations on a job well done. It looks sturdy enough for Joseph to inherit.
Bill Phillips: Well the timber came from South Africa so it must be good

Have you renamed it the Victory Bench?
Bill Phillips: No I shall call it the lockdown bench
How lovely! Great job. Mine is still upside down awaiting my saw and hammer. The weather has been very cold and who wants to work on things outdoors in weather like that!
Bill Phillips: I had the benefit of a very pleasant spell of weather that was warm but not hot so doing this was very enjoyable on the whole
Well done Bill, now you can both sit out and enjoy afternoon tea and scones whenever the weather is suitable.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Brian. That sounds liker a good plan!

It looks very good, Bill1! it has that rustic charm, much like our good selves.
Bill Phillips: Indeed so Alan. We are loaded with charm
That's a great job, Bill, I really like the finish! smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Martin. Ronseal satin strain in natural oak. I was pleased with how it came out
you did it and it looks great... for another ten years Bill....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Peter. Overall it is sound. There is a very small amount of decay in the one leg but it is not yet a problem and I would expect the bench to last at least 5 years if not 10
I really do like that bench, quite unusual. You did well, Bill. I'm surprised to you don't want to do any more.
Bill Phillips: I have done the other bench in the garden but that is only a small simple one.
A ggod job Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Michael. It turned out better than I dared hope!
oh the stories this bench could tell
Bill Phillips: haha well a few perhaps
