BOBS MAGAZINE RACK AND TABLE RENOVATION

This coffee table and magazine rack, was made by Bobby Macnamara (Somerset 1962-66) in Mr. Nutters (Tutor) Shop Carpentry.
It was then sent to his mother in Blackburn as a present, over the years it has sadly become worse for wear.
Last year Bob collected it from his sister with a view to repairing it.
He requested I renovate it, as I had the time!
Below is a sequence of stages it was restored to its former glory.
Bob was only 15 when he made this.
