Restoration and replacement of missing elements of this ornate Gothic-style 19th century preachers pulpit.

This movable pulpit suffered significant losses of moldings and carved parts over the years from being moved around and banged up. Missing moldings were  replicated, Dutchman inlays inserted and carved where missing, and touched up by artists, and finished to match adjacent woodwork.

Cutting of matching knives to recreate moldings, carving missing elements and skillfully inlaying to match original design

Over a century of use, and weekly movements resulted in heavy losses of applied moldings and decorative carved woodwork. Cutting of matching knives to recreate moldings, carving missing elements and skillfully inlaying to match original design was key to successfully restoring this magnificent pulpit.
