I noticed that a heavy bench was lying idle in the corner of my reading room. I know that it is a very heavy one made of quality wood. If I dispose of it I can get some Rs.2000/- (about $40/-).But, if I repair that one it serves my purpose. Again going for new one will tell upon my pocket. The new one will cost nearly Rs.5000/-. So, decided to repair that one. I got a good idea. Pickout a clean cloth and cleaned the bench first removing all unused articles kept over it. Took a sand paper and the surface was given a nice finish . It gave a good appearance. I pickdout the white paint I kept in the shelf and applied to the wood as a first coat. Allowed it to dry. It was white primer from Nerolac. Again applied a second coat. It started shining. I know it should. Searching for the Caster wheels lying idle in the Almirah and fitted to the legs of the bench with a nice hand drill. The work was over within 1 hours. The bench has got wheels now and I do not wheel it heavy anymore. I am feeling proud of myself for the repair and for putting it into use again.

You have every reason to be proud because you did a very good repair job. I like also the idea of attaching wheels to the heavy bench

It makes the work easy. The only thing is you should have time and proper tools to get the thing done.
