repairing the Walnut Chest

I have added four photos of the repair work done to the walnut chest. The first is regluing the joinery of one of the drawers. the second is gluing down loose veneer on part of the mirror stand. The third is four new interior runners set next to three worn runners (worn runners are to the right) and the fourth picture is of two parts of the mirror stand. the one on the right has been stained. The reason for this is that the chest is made from two woods, to reconcile this in the factory, the manufacturer adds stain into the finish and basically paints the entire piece. to reveal the natural color and beauty of the walnut veneer, I selectively stain the piece so that all parts match.
