  1. A coat of bondo, and a bit of epoxy, and...
  2. I forgot epoxy. The old version, cutler’s cement, was made from resin and iron oxide.
  3. JB Weld... I’ve had two unopened tubes for ten years. Bondo... nope. Blob-dough. Gorilla Glue... failed on my projects. https://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/linear-expansion-coefficients-d_95.html
  4. This is a bit better... the light spots are the bubbles. Follow the grain lines for the big picture.
  5. We have some of this in maple flooring. It only has the big blisters. Overall, the wood is low quality—maybe silver maple. Conversely, the oak flooring is top notch with good grain contrast. Both woods were laid over the original yellow pine. I couldn’t get any depth/contrast in the photo, you have to follow the grain.
  6. The only thing that makes the writing German(ic) in my opinion is the capitalization in the gothic script. That’s clearly fractur. Gothic was popular in London and New York. Different capitals. The rest is ordinary business hand of the era.
  7. I noticed that the ink in the date appears different from the rest, that the writing of the whole is “Italian/business hand,” and is likely later than the alleged late.
  8. Unless the maker had a scanner and ink jet printer... in the 1920’s...
  9. Your end pin is missing its removable pitch pipe. No kidding.
  10. I think the finish colour is called Swan lake, but my French is a little rusty. No madder.
  11. I like the idea of double doors in the back, for setting the sound post. Or is it an ash dump?
  12. https://books.google.com/books?id=8pkZAAAAYAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=Draw+acanthus&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiXjaeN-97cAhUQUt8KHZQJAR4Q6AEIJDAA ... page 66+
  13. According to the VAR certificate, it's French. It says something about blockology and hands-on review.
