Brandon received a full figure screw type nutcracker for restoration work. It is a very detailed well done nutcracker but had some condition issues. You can see some of the issues in these photos.

Every nutcracker has it’s own unique quirks and each carver that originally carved them had their own style which takes time to learn for making the restoration correct. Brandon did a great job making this restoration accurate and look seamless.after_front2

Now Brandon is working on a few more restorations, a redesign of one of his original design nutcracker and a few more projects.  So look for updates about those in the near future!
