OK, here it is restored. The tea service that went through two walls in a tornado.
The tray turned out well. I forgot to take a picture before I sent off to the owner.
The teapot was the hardest, because of the spout.
How did I do it? Annealing and burnishing over and over. I also made some new tools that fit exactly the curves of the pots.

This has to be the most unusual job I have had so far. This is a tea service that survived a tornado. It and its owner flew through the wall of the dining room and then through the wall of the next house. It and its owner both survived!
Will show picture of restored pieces in December.
I have it close to finished. The teapot is going slower than expected.

This suit of armor is a copy of a suit of armor made in the early 19th century or late 18th.
It needed cleaning, dent removal and new small parts. Not an easy task but interesting project.

Who would have thought that there were pipes with sterling silver to be repaired.
Well there are. These are repaired now.
