A customer brought this to me a few days ago and ask if I could save it. Had a few pieces of wood that needed replaced, and 4 or 5 pieces of glass cut. Reglazed the whole thing after fitting and attaching everything back together. Not a major project, but glad to see someone willing to spend a few bucks to keep something original to an old house. Owner did all the painting, so don’t have a finished picture of it. Thanks Jeff

Jeff,

We agree with those comments, too. That’s a great save!
