Here we go again, could have named the thread "Bar Rescue" but that's taken I think.
Here's another one that was saved from the dumpster by a couple of hours. It sat in a yard for years but was too big and heavy to lift over the fence or it would have been gone long ago. Lots of pressed wood made even me hesitate this time, but the tapered base was just too interesting. This is how I found it, leaves and all:
The light bulb wire had been chewed through by a mouse. The pressed wood top was warped and cracked, so I knocked off the top layer and belt-sanded off the glued portions. A plywood top is going on today with a zebrawood veneer next. Not sure about stain yet (ideas?)
