Brandon is now working on two restorations.  First off is this very interesting owl nutcracker.

This piece  has a couple of issues that need to be addressed.  First the feather tufts on the head have been broken off in a curious manner and they need to be  added.  Also, the beak needs to be repaired as well as the stump it is perched upon.  When all of that is completed it will need to stained and finished to its former glory.

He had an old repair that needed to be redone.  His hat had been glued on and not in the right position.

The hat also is missing the very tip of it and will need to be replaced.  The rim of the hat in the front is also chipped and will need to be repaired also.

Sneak Peek

   Posted by: admin    in Figural Nutcracker, Wood Carving

Thought I would do a quick post to give a glimpse of what Brandon has been working on.  In between other projects he has been working on creating this Seahorse Nutcracker.  I have been very excited to see this one get done.  I just love the design!

Here is a quick peek of it without any finish or its glass eyes……
