Project Log -- A Little Trim Repair
I did some repairs to the base of a small drum table for a new client. While I was delivering it, they discovered that a piece of the beaded trim on the drawer was missing. They asked me if it was something I could fix.
"If it is made of wood, I can fix it"
Here's a closeup of the missing trim.
And another look
I started by cleaning the repair area and then handshaping the replacement piece. Below you can see it about 2/3 of the way to dialed in.
The irregular end wear the original piece snapped off at an angle left a little unfinished divot. When the rest of the tone is right, I'll fill that with matching hot melt lacquer to create a seamless fix.
Here's the finished project
