How to Apply Gold Leaf to a Classic Chair

Hello everyone

In the previous topic I introduced to everyone the project: the chair is engraved with a simple pattern

I have updated some pictures of this chair's production. Currently the chair is about to be completed, is in the stage of gilding. I recorded the process of gilding the chair, Everyone please watch the video.

I will continue to update the pictures as the chair is finished

wow - another awesome project !!
is it just the one chair or do you have a set of matching chairs ?

carving is a learned skill and art - gilding is a learned skill and art.
the two coming together in one project is simply beautiful !!
thank you again for taking the time to visit with us so regularly.
I know you have a very busy place there.
but the hands-on craftsmanship is just so inspiring.
thank you,


there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.
