Antique furniture restorers, whether they be professionals or hobby workers, require dexterity, imagination, and of course, proper accessories. The Naturtrend wood carvings shop offers help with this, with prefabricated decorative wooden mouldings. The FK-184-s are pieces adorned with richly decorated leaf and flower motifs. You can renew furniture with them, but such carved wood panels also work great as interior door pediments. A wood crown molding can also lend a completely new, elegant feeling to the room it is placed in.
You don't need special tools to fix the furniture appliques. Just a few things that are readily 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.
