With all of Bob's medical procedures and set-backs there have been a number of household projects that have definitely been put on the back burner, but Lucas has been a real trooper and has completed several yard projects. We have six benches that we use various places in the yard and they are probably over 10 years old and were in pretty sad shape. Lucas replaced all the wood pieces with merbau, an Asian hardwood, and scrubbed, primed and painted all the metal parts. They are just like brand new benches now. I love them! I wish I had taken some "before" photos, but the best I could do was find a couple from 2 and more years ago (when Mr. O and Mr. B were newborns) that give some idea of the condition of the benches.
