Two years ago when we moved into our apartment here in Switzerland we bought this massive oak table in a sale.
back then it was not treated and while we feared that we would stain it we painted it with a layer of Acryl Varnish.
We only put in one layer of the varnish and now two years later is has worn of through use and daily life.
So when I was walking past our neighbour I remembered he is a builder. So I went up to them and asked if they had a sander that they might loan/rent out to me. And lo and behold they had a big machine from bosh that was hardly used and they were willing to rent it out for 20 Franks (roughly the same as a dollar)
I got some of the special sand papers for the machine and am now ready to start sanding our tables.
I was going to just do big dining room table and since I now have this fancy machine I will also be doing our smaller coffee table. I might as wel take advantage of the situation. Tomorrow bright and early and hopefully out of the rain I will be able to start sanding the tables and making a whole lot of dust.
I will feel like a proper man again, lol, doing man stuff like fixing furniture...
Sitting at home unemployed and doing the housekeeping is fine for a while but sometimes other stuff needs to be done.
The tables and intensifying the job hunt are part of this. Getting back into the game after wallowing a month and doing nothing.
Holiday is over, back to work
