garden bench restoration

We’ve  inherited an old garden bench from Marjan’s parents. A wrought iron frame with pine slats. The slats have perished long ago and the frame served as “decoration” in our garden. We decided to give it a third (fourth, fifth, sixth ; who knows ?) chance.


The frame showed lots of earlier “restorations” ;-)

I found out that hard wood has become expensive, but it’s the only way to do it properly.



Decades ago, my brother Henk produced biofuel in his backyard, in Cimahi Indonesia. I still have a sample of his biodiesel, that my other brother Jan gave me after one of his visits.


Last week, I started my new job as senior-operator at the biofuel plant in Sluiskil.

Life is full of surprises  ;-)
