We received a restoration at the workshop, Antique Refinishers, San Diego, and the column had been re-veneered with contact cement and the wrong wood.
As it was a neat project and it is the second time we are veneering columns (see my post on our Biedermeier table project) in the last 2 months, we decided to do a video on this project and try to get people to consider veneering columns as it is a neat trick.
Patrick Edwards did the veneering using the technique he developed. You can find in a December 2004 article on Fine woodworking No. 173, but we decided to do a video as it is better than pictures. It is slightly less than 30 minutes long, but has lots of info and filmed almost real time.
I redid the gilding which was gone and add a little wear to it
Let me know what you think and if you would like us to do more videos!
