Here is my last current restoration.
I bought this deardorff at Glenview, in Chicago.
The set is more or less complete, and need a large restorations (19 parts).
The back was completely home made, I found Steels parts near Sir Barry C. Cochran.
After a complete dismantling, the wooden restorationswere made, and various fittings.
The varnish is in progress, from 1 month, I make a "French Varnish" which requires 12 layers of varnish.
The varnish is almost ended, the reassembly of the deardorff will be made the next weekend.
The bellows will be a home made one.
The Deardorff as I found.
The new Home made back.
