Carving and Restoration
I also repair broken woodcarvings and carve the missing portions from solid wood, matching the grain, blending them into the original piece and then matching the finish. The result is a beautifully restored piece. Before and after photos of several examples are shown here.

This carved box suffered from wood worm damage, particularly on the back lid where it was almost eaten through. The lock was there but rusty and not working, the upper lock section was missing. I restored the lock mechanism, had a key made, then repaired the worm damage and restoring the finish.


These clock cases were damaged and missing many small parts. Using photo reference the damage was repaired and the missing parts were carved to match the original carver's style and then replaced. Then the finish was restored.

This beautifully carved antique clock came to me with cracks, holes, breaks and missing parts. This very rare and unique clock required research and skillful carving to match the work of the original master carver. These photos show some of the damage, then midway thru restoration and then the final beautiful result after matching the original stain and finish.

Note that I rarely use wood fillers. I splice in real wood and carve it to make the repairs.
