    So am I "The Wizard"

    I received this project today. I will not be starting it for a week or 2 but it will be a challenge. I have done restoration on Paper Lacquered furnishing before that have come out awesome looking. Some contractor sat on the top of the box and cracked it. Separating the wood and the finish.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    First step: hang the contractor that sat on it.
    After that, I haven't got a clue. Very unfortunate that happened.

    Dave, I would say, yes, you ARE the wizard. I wouldn't want that project in my shop, but I'm sure you'll have no problem with it.

    That looks like a tough one. Fixing the crack should be not too difficult but fixing the paint...

    They sure brought it to the right guy

    Wow, I would love to be able to fix something like this. I look forward to the finished results.

    In the mean time, I'm going to go stuff myself with a couple dozen donuts then go sitting on various boxes so I have the necessary amount of things to practice fixing!

    That is pretty awesome that you have the skills to fix such things. A true mark of professionalism, skill and knowledge when people ask for the impossible and you can deliver.

    Keep up the great work!

    Dave, I can't imagine repairing this and it being considered "saved". Do you mind sharing your thought process on fixing this with us?

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
