We start doing a course of restoration of antique writing desk; we had the excellent idea of standing with the furniture in the workshop of course. Let’s step through the admirable work of the artist. We begins removing the fittings and removing the interior. To reinforce plywood, which was hollow in some areas, injected rabbit tail with a syringe. Then he made the thorough pickling, also scraping the globs of wax with a scalpel.
To resurface with new mahogany veneer, we cut and remove the new sheet templates, and paste bunny tail pieces with matching grain if possible. The area had plenty of nicks and some cracks. After consulting with our teacher restoration we decided to cover antique writing desk with wood pulp, varnish, and finally complete the arrangement with what she calls ‘pictorial reintegration’: colored with watercolors imitating the grain.

A polishing used, after a first manual cleaning. The antique writing desk has regained its original beauty, lacking the last coat of varnish and restoration of metal parts. The result of the work could not be more splendid.
