new end table

So, we knew there were bugs in the madrone end table. It finally drove me crazy and I yanked it out of there.  Here's a cross-cut of the wood, where you can see the many holes dug by the grub, before it comes out as a beetle.

I got the new redwood piece in place, and plastered it in:

 Then there was a lot of white wash to redo. Again, supervised:

Doesn't look too bad... in this light:

I could do more polishing and painting... and probably will.

Actually, kind of happy about this progress.  It needed to be up so the drain trap will fit.
