    But still a very beautifull poster.

    Het Item was zeer juist omschreven, een werkbank in eikenhout. In de werktuigbak is een plank in dennenhout gebruikt, dit kan, dit werd vroeger zo hersteld met het materiaal dat men voorhanden had. Net dat geeft deze bank zijn unieke geleefde karakter. Indien u niet tevreden bent kan ik ze graag terugnemen. Vriendelijke groeten
