Inheriting a old desk, not sure how to fix it up
I have an old hand made wood desk, that I had growing up. Its a solid hunk of wood (well, several hunks of wood really), and it weighs a ton. Also, pretty sure its completely hand made by my uncle who can no longer walk much.
My dads a cabinet maker, so I have some vauge basics of wood working under my belt. But I'm a computer tech by trade myself. So I don't have alot of really big skills to use here, or to draw upon.
This desk was abused by my sister and I, while we grew up. It has holes drilled into (but not through) it, and plenty of scratches (some are surface scratches, some are deeper). Since she's moving out, and I'm moving into the basement apartment in a month or so, I'd like to try and fix it up a bit. Can you fix really beat up furniture like that? Is this crazy idea of mine even possible?
