Circa had a client that needed some ceramic pots redone. This is our sandblaster removing the glaze. Th

This is Junior begining to blast glaze.

Temp/humidity was well over 100 degrees and then he has to put on this get-up.

I had to back off to get this shot. Cloud was remarkable.

blasted sand!

Jr. suiting up to do the deed. I don't know what temp/humidity was but it was way too hot to
put this stuff on for me.  :( 
We needed a ceramic pot blasted. I had tried 60 grit paper, elbow grease--to no avail.

I cleaned this today. Murphy's Oil. Part of four piece set. We were debating whether or not this was faux bois or real burl. It is real. Telling ya.
Circa is on Park Hill near 8th Ave. Furniture restoration shop. Right across the street from Old Neighborhood Grill on FW's Southside. 817.924.4822

I'm working at Circa on Park Hill these day. Love my job.

This is what we start with.

Atticus, the Wizard King, Circa's woodworker.

This is what the shop is full of. And we get to work on it. :0 If it looks gorgeous then that is because it IS gorgeous.

Oak chair repair&touch-up

Near black stain about 3" from back of chair. I had scrubbed on stain to get it this clean. Stain was "in" the wood.

I ended up "wood-graining" the stain to remove. I recommended to my customer that we NOT strip the piece because it's patina looked wonderful. We just wanted to hide major problems.

Lighter stain in seat.

Post repair of stain.

Chip out of right side.

Chip filled with epoxy and then re-colored and lacquered. Not practicable to close joint.
