Victorian Restoration - Alameda

New medallions casted from moulds
Beautiful victorian restoration in alameda ca. I worked on with Signature Painting.
this house is over 100 years old so some of the redwood trim was missing or damaged and needed to be replaced
Locally, none of these classic trim profiles were available off the shelf. I milled all my own replacement trim from vertical grain redwood for period authenticity that will last another 100 years



missing pendants on corbels

this winged pendant was over painted muting most of its detail so it was removed stripped and copied for other areas of the house that had this detailed wing missing

the introduction of the hand held scroll saw in 1900 had a lot to do with victorian houses becoming such elaborate works of art

my reproduction scroll work in place

new medallion added to reproduction scroll work
