Respect and Preservation - AM Musings

Last January I showed this photo of beaded redwood panel in the entry porch of our Victorian in San Francisco.  We installed new intercoms and the old doorbell was removed leaving an unslightly hole.  I was afraid we would need to resort to a cover plate or a repair of the hole would always be visible.  Our contractor, Kenji said he would repair the hole so I anxiously awaited the outcome as I feared something unslightly.

Here he inserted wood plugs in the holes.

Next he skimmed the holes with a patching compound and sanded it smooth.  You can still see the outline of the original hole.

Finally he painted the whole thing to match the rest of panel.  If you didn't see it before, you would never know there was a patch.
Our contractor, Kenji Hasegawa did a fantastic job!  See more of his work on his website here.
