Recut Worn Checkering
This job was especially challenging; old lines were visible - most places - but several spots had to be carried through, picking up lines where you could. Stock was not refinished, the character kept in tact, just with new checkering to make the shooting better - and to give her an extra dose of class. Prices for this project were $100 per panel.
