Woodcarving Restoration and Repair Pictorial
Two of the bird woodcarvings sold at auction on April 5, 2014 had sustained damage that required serious
work. I had offered the new owners the option to get the bird woodcarvings repaired before they took them home, at no cost to them, as I always do with those customers who purchase my birds. So they both made the trip back home with me. All the repair work was completed today and so only the finishing, painting and cleaning work remains for tomorrow.
