Mantel Parts Repair

Plinth and column base cleaned of glue. New dowel cut, masked ready for finish repair. Glues used were epoxy, had to plane it down. So the finish now needs a little repair.


Finish repaired and ready for glue up.

Many thanks to my friend, Scott from The Second Artist

Mantel Magic

Recently I stumbled upon this antique mantel in a local shop.  The photo shows the mantel lying on the floor of my entry living room.   It is close to the era of my home and likely similar to one that was removed from the entry room of my home several owners ago.  With help from my dear friend  Scott d.b.a. "The Second Artist", the column and plinth on the left side will be reattached and the entire mantel will be installed where the original one lived.  There will be more photos to come, as we progress.
