The first step in building a colored lacquer finish http://www.jhconklin.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=171199189 171199189 Veneer Repair Walnut crotch veneer. Thin protein glue, modelling spatula to spread it underneath, let it dry, heat activate the glue with the iron and use the leather to insulate fingers while holding it in place. Next area. Patience required. http://www.jhconklin.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=172549886 172549886 Large Cherry Dining Table On the carts ready for staining.

Plaque from a lectern we're refinishing for ... well ... that had gotten rather beaten. They want the laser engraving to be "dark, say, black!" Of the two methods we considered this one got the nod: seal the wood with clear, spray a few passes of a thin black primer, sand the primer off the ground surfaces leaving the black in the engraving. Soon to be back in service in Glassboro, NJ. http://www.jhconklin.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=187553086 187553086 Bedroom Set in process Large panel headboard stealing the show! http://www.jhconklin.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=187943332 187943332 Woodstove End of a cold day.

Ready for upholstery! http://www.jhconklin.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188306056 188306056 Boring Furniture Really, there it is. Wonder if the juxtaposition of the "Boring" and the "Distinctive" ever gave anyone pause while stapling the label. http://www.jhconklin.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=188306057 188306057 Upholstering Vintage Sofa Newly webbed and tied deck with the covering in place.

Before the next mass, the cushions will get new foam padding and a washable vinyl fabric. With 270 to do, we will all do a lot of kneeling in this church! http://www.jhconklin.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=199376355 199376355
