A Break on a Bedpost Disappears!

Here is a little something for my readers which again demonstrates the considerable range of abilities here at our shop.  I know you can't tell from the pictures, but this is the footboard of a queen sized bed.  It has a wooden rail across the base and it used to have a decorative turned stretcher above the wooden rail, between the bet posts as well.  The stretcher broke off, leaving an ugly ragged break point.  In the picture to the left, you see we began by cutting out the broken wood, and filling it with a plug.  In the center picture you can see we smoothed the plug so that it was flush with the bedpost, and contoured it to match the curved shape of the surrounding area.  In the picture to the right, you can see the bedpost after we have color matched the repaired area.  As you can see, the damage disappears!  Pretty neat right?!?
