Chair leg repair

IMG_1694IMG_1723Vintage chair leg was severely damaged by a dog.  The damaged area was removed with hand tools and then a patch made from old mahogany was scarfed in and secured with hide glue.  Carving followed by tinted shellac makes the repair almost invisible.

Bee Hive Leg

Great example of Bee Hive leg on this mid 1800’s linen press restored this week.  The interior of the case was damaged as a result of side shear forces when the case was slid on the floor and not picked up for relocation.  The photo on the left demonstrates the clamping process as the wood is stabilized and moved into place after hide glue is utilized.

This past weekend the finishing touches were put on the walnut slab table for the kitchen.  The tree was purchased from a local sawyer, harvested here in Nashville.  After drying for about 4 years the slab was planned to thickness and then jointed as described in an earlier post.  Used a classic historic finish of beeswax, and shellac.  Spectacular results.
