Almost a year ago a customer sent a halfmoon box back to me for repair. It had fallen off a shelf and hit the floor, but from the parts I received it looked like it had exploded!
When the parts arrived, I couldn't imagine how I was going to put them all back together. Normally, when constructing a halfmoon box there is a step by step sequence that I follow. But, due to the nature of the breakage, many of these parts had to be reassembled at the same time, and in a different order than I would normally do. After thinking about it off and on for almost a year, I finally tackled it a couple of weeks ago.
After this, I had to fill in a few places where chips were missing, sand the entire box, oil twice and buff. Here's the finished piece:
Not too bad. What do you think?
