Some things are worth saving....before and after

At some point we either walk away saying it's a lost cause or we take a chance at preserving through restoration. In this case a good deal of restoration. As some may recall this piece showed up in the condition shown in the first two pics. Today it arrived back to me in this condition, no thanks to USPS. When I saw the box my heart sank. Perhaps the old piece was just not meant to be saved. But thankfully it still lives for another day. I rushed so the pic is not the best, but still enjoy and remember if you are shipping pack well, expect the worse and plan accordingly.
