When I removed the wooden ball handle, there was this layer of stuff that I had to chisel off, I think this may have belonged to her mom originally. YEARS of grubby hands, and the size of the ball such that you had to touch the lid to grasp it. A nice new metallic handle really offsets that grain.

I spent the last couple days sorta cruising around some of the lesser neighborhoods, looking for something like a coffee table to refinish sitting by a curb
Pics of said designated bin of refuse?
