News from the Workshop:
Repairs - with more people moving to our neck of the woods, there is an increasing demand for repairs for damage occurring in transit
The single board top and a rear foot of this Huon Pine chest of drawers were damaged in transit.
Several bad creases in top had to be steamed out and the chipped foot chipped had to have replacement piece glued on and shaped by files and chisels.
Huon Pine looks similar to NZ Kauri, but it is a distinct species; and like Kauri, it is no longer milled or felled. The top has 3 coats of Tung Oil hand rubbed between coats and then waxed. The foot was shellacked, as original.
