Customer Showcase: Philip Redman
Philip Redman Clock Restoration
Our customer showcase this week has been produced by Philip Redman. Philip came to us to for some Figured Mahogany after he decided that an old clock that he had needed restoring. As the pictures show, Philip has done an incredible job of giving the clock a new lease of life.
The veneer received an application of mahogany stain, three coats of satin varnish and a couple of coats of beeswax polish to protect the finish. He then discovered quite early on that the veneer didn’t bend too well so each piece had to be cut (using a paper template and very sharp Stanley blade), gently bent or curved over a boiling kettle spout and then fixed as quickly as possible to the carcass using Evostik impact adhesive.
The end product has turned out to be a success with the clock now looking as though it was new off the shelf! We wish Philip all the best with future wood projects.
