Someone once said that Steve was a plastic surgeon for aged wood furniture and I could not agree more!
You will not believe your eyes when you see this transformation!
We had a customer drop this off last week to have the leg repaired.
They had it repaired once before but it did not hold up well so they brought it to Dr. Steve for repair :)
The large piece of the center support broke away with part of it still attached to the leg.
The table is extremely top heavy, which puts a lot of pressure on the legs.
Patching the leg with glue or putty would not have held the weight.
So he had to remove the damaged section.
His style might be a bit unconventional to some but it works for us!
After he made the cuts on both sides he removed the middle with a drill and chisel.
Once he had the middle removed he cut a piece to fit out of a scrap piece of mahogany we had on hand.
And glued and clamped it into place.
And worked his magic!
He used our detail sander to create new grooves.
After getting it all back together he did a bit more sanding and sprayed a stain on the base.
Happy Tuesday :)
