Smile restoring a seventy year old teakwood box

My grandfather bought a wolf cubmaster when he was young with all the lathe , jigsaw attachments et all....

He modified a then twenty year year old teakwood box to take the stand and its attachments


Of late i have started using the cubmaster.
i thought i ll restore the box to a usable condition

Here are the initial pics.
Not having been used for a long time the box had a lot of grime, mud, muck and what not on it...
here are the pics after sandpapering it ..

I believe you will have to upload your pictures to a different server, and use the <img> tag to refer to each of them. You can also use thumbnails this way.

That teak is nice wood. Different character and pretty durable.
