One of my neighbors needed some replacement corbels so I made her some from mahogany. Nice project to help restore one of the nice Victorian homes in Hackettstown.

Great job, Bob! We made many of these for historical buildings in Philadelphia, along with complete cornice replacements. Some of my favorite projects.

Happy new year.

Lovely work! Bravo! I rebuilt my large Craftsman-style porch. Very rewarding, I walk across it every day.
