Brandon completed the restoration of the owl nutcracker.  Like every project that comes through the workshop this restoration had its own set of challenges.  Each project is a learning experience and much is learned on each one.  Brandon is quite persnickety with getting everything lined up and looking seamless.  Then he puts the same care into the finish to make the restoration work look like it never was broke.

Brandon had to add the “ears” and beak.  The stump was also broken and needed to be added to.  Here are some pictures of the finished nutcracker….






This piece came out beautifully.  My pictures do not do it justice.  It was quite a struggle to get good pictures with the lack of sunlight around here!  I think we need a break from all the rain…….enough is enough already!
