Step By Step...
I decided that today was the day to replace it.
I also found a little furniture wheel in my stash.
As soon as I got it glued in place... We all know what happened next.
The leg I fixed is the one by her left elbow. As soon as I finished gluing the leg in place, she started gathering up the drawers to take away.
I told her not to, if she wants everything to match when I am finished. I will put a new finish on it tomorrow, after the glue dries.
She reluctantly returned the drawers and made me sign a contract saying that the finished desk was hers to keep...
Maybe she will get it and maybe she won't. I have the only copy of said contract! It could disappear or go up in smoke at any moment.
I am not sure where it will go, but I am liking the desk a lot. Maybe I will make a gentlemen's study... Let's see her claim that!
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.

A good repair job Casey.
What a great desk. You did a great job on replacing the leg. It is a very handsome piece.
Hi Casey. That's a charming desk. It's nice to see someone make the effort to restore
something instead of trashing it. I have a few inexpensive tables that need some help.
Thanks to all of you. It was not an expensive piece, but I felt that it was well done and worth saving!
Lovely desk - amazing how you can just fix it (I'm starting out in miniatures and don't have that sort of creative mind yet!).
Enjoying reading your posts. Bethan
