Besides all the veneer that had to be repaired, some of the doors and panels were warped or swelled, because of the water damage. In some cases we needed to plane the edges down to fit into their frames, in other cases such as in the photo to the left, we had to re-soak the wood and clamp it down as it dried, so that it would dry flat. We also had to completely replace the veneer on the doors which was lengthy work.
Now that the repairs are just about completed, it is time to move on to the next phase. The entire piece has to be prep sanded, stained and finished. Our client is coming in this weekend to choose her stain color and I am looking forward to seeing what she decides to go with.
