As most of you know I love scrolling and creating intarsia but in order to keep the doors open at midlothian woodworks I also do custom woodworking , furniture repair and restoration work. so here are a few photos of my newest restoration project.These are the “before ” pics of a Hocking Valley corn sheller
(circa 1900) that I have been commissioned to rebuild and make functional.I will be using quarter-sawn white oak for the wood. Should be a fun project.
Legs have been cut off but all of the mechanical parts are there.
Can’t salvage any of the old wood due to rot and post beetles but enough left for accurate measurements
