L.C. Smith 00 Grade, 20 Gauge, Wood Repair


This early (1909) 20 gauge 00 grade L.C. Smith came in for repair of its cracked head and refinishing.  The cracks were obvious but it wasn't until we disassembled it that we realized the head had completely separated with the left side falling right off into our hands.  We were able to make an effective repair of the break and refinished it with a period correct look.  The flat top checkering was done correctly with square grooves, using tools that we make ourselves in the shop.  No metal work was done.  We thought it was a very nice piece of wood for a field grade!
