I got a call from a lady who asked me to restore her father's tool chest. She had done some searching on the internet and found my web site. She is from Atlanta, Georgia, but visits Melbourne, Florida regularly. She brought her precious heirloom to me at the next show I did in Cocoa, FL. She reluctantly turned it over to me for restoration. I explained that the STAR chests have riveted hardware and she explained that she just wanted it repaired and refreshed. I took great pains to mask off all the hardware during restoration, repaired damage to the top and bottom, and did the best I could.
She picked it up yesterday and was thrilled.
Details of the restoration are here:
