More woodgraining on the church organ project.
The 1850 organ. Hopefully I'll soon be in position to take on the most daunting part of this job - putting it all back together again! Apart from the final coat coat of varnish and some tidying up, I've now done all the large panels.
I'm pleased to say that I've been joined by my friend and colleague Alex Schouvaloff, https://decorative-art-services.co.uk, who is now tackling all the gilding and intricate stencil work on the pipes. He has painstakingly removed the awful silver paint to expose all the original designs and colours and is now in a position to reproduce exactly the original appearance.
