Here is the completed restoration of the marquetry games tabletop described below in the March 2005 meeting.

 

March 2005 Meeting

John Sedgwick with a 100-year+ games tabletop demonstrates how to restore (rather than conserve) missing marquetry and a warped solid wood backing. Marquetry was restored in the style of the original.     (Before photo)
Note saw blade gap in RHS scroll work in the full photo. This had to be reproduced.  Just one of the demos at the March meeting.
