A demonstration of cabinet making skills:

Customers frequently underestimate what can be achieved in terms of quality and competency, however a professional restorer will attempt to replicate the skills of the original craftsperson who made the piece. To demonstrate this, here is a complete case made for an 8 Day twin fusee movement. Early 19th century style 'chamfer top' case, made using period techniques, old timbers, and reproduced brass fittings.  A genuine period clock of the same type can be seen on the clocks and barometers page.

This case is not intended to deceive but to illustrate some skills used in restoration work and of course provide a suitable case for a period movement.
