The Story of the Fix
While carving with TC in Oregon, we noticed that Bonnie's upper right arm was developing a split in the back where the grain runs crosswise in the joint. In keeping with her preciousness and value, we decided that the only way to effect a mend would be to use a solid gold peg. Given her love of pearls and diamonds, it was a cinch to convince Bonnie to let us drill out and peg her arm with 18k gold. Here is the story of the fix, with full photo credits to the patient and long suffering Charles Vollum.
