You don't have to be a professional at cabinet making to renovate, with the help of these wood carvings reminiscent of corinthian columns, you can restore antique furniture and decorate them even at home. It's all just a matter of patience and dexterity.
Below, we have gathered a few pointers, a small aid to help the work:
What is exotic wood?
It's actually a rubber tree from which they get caoutchouc. It can be painted and stained just like any other European wood. Exota is harder than pine, softer than beech. According to its fiber structure and color, it is between beech and oak.
Gluing the carved wooden decorative elements
You don't need special tools to fix it. Just a few things that are commonly available. Sanding paper, wood glue (D2 or D3) and something you can use to press down and press while drying.
But let's look at the work in progress:
1. Sanding: It is worth sanding the pattern of the wooden ornament to get rid of small surface defects. It is also worth sanding the back before gluing. Also, if possible, the surface to be glued should also be prepared by sanding.
2. Gluing: Apply glue to both previously sanded and dust-free surfaces, then spread evenly. After that, all we have to do is to press the two surfaces together during drying. We can do this in several ways. We can press it with a carpenter's clamp, but also with weights. Professionals also use small nails to fasten it. If some glue comes out around the gluing, wipe it with a slightly damp cloth, so you won't have a problem with it later. It depends on the temperature, but after a few hours the glue hardens, so the clamp can be removed. Of course, if you want to be sure, you should wait for it to dry completely, it can take 12-24 hours. We have tested the following adhesives for gluing decorative elements and skirting boards, so we can recommend them:
Glass, mirror: Pattex special (also known as liquid nail)
Furniture panel: Pattex special, ponal lacquer
For wood, for the edges of furniture panels: any wood glue is suitable
