Early Lever Nutcracker

Early Lever Nutcracker

Oct 13

 

This great really old lever nutcracker came into the shop with some damage to the face as well some older repairs that were not done well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I removed all the old repairs, replaced the damaged areas with Boxwood, and blended them into the original piece:

 

 

 

The face was fixed and all the new repairs were then painstakingly stained and colored to seamlessly blend in with the original wood and the piece’s great patina:

 

 

 

 

Both myself and the customer are very pleased with how well this piece turned out.
