For a while now, management has been hinting at how well my miter saw stand would work as a dresser. I don't see it, but since my chop saw is out for repair, the timing is right to give it a try.
The base is in good shape but the top, not so much. It has water damage from a less than stellar storage unit. There is also a big split in the top.
After fixing the split, scraping, sanding, planing, then more sanding, the top looked good except for a few spots.
The water damage was too deep and couldn't be removed. Re-staining was not an option.
I ended up going with black milk paint and wax. If this gets a thumbs down I just dig up some pine and make a new top.
