The Mystery Corner Cupboard – Chapter 6

January 20, 2015

Now that there were feet to stand on, it was time to see to the soundness of the base. On the front, the mahogany skirt molding was loose, as was the thick mahogany veneer it was attached to. I reglued it first with hide glue, as it was originally, then reglued the molding.

The thick, loose mahogany veneer on the lower front and right side was next.  It was an extra challenge because there was some thick, dried Elmer’s Glue-All under the veneer that had to be removed first. I got the wrong glue out, got the right glue in, clamped it flat, and it was good to go for the next generations.
