Here are links to some photos of the Ed Roos Factory:
The chest I was working was made from cedar, with poplar as a secondary wood and walnut veneer. It had some structural issues as well as finish issues. The legs were loose and one fell off entirely in the shop. The chest was also missing its front rail between the front legs. The finish was damaged in several areas and because of this (and the customers desire to have the piece a different color) we decided to strip the finish off. Below are several photos of the work and the finished product.
Here is a photo of the chest when it entered my shop.
This detail shot shows some damage to the finish on the top.
Here is a photo of the broken leg!
This next photo shows the base of the chest being glued in place.
A detail shot of the foot being glued back in place.
In this photo, you can see the new front rail being attached to the chest, as well as the gluing of some more loose joinery.
This photo shows the chest stripped and sanded, ready for stain and finishing.
