This was a small but important procedure. This leg of an oak cabinet has suffered a lot. Due to mopping the floors frequently, the wood has weakened and like other natural materials it became subject to the forces of decay. In this case organisms like fungi and insects gradually nibbled away the wood, reducing it to dust.
Unfortunately, the leg could not be saved anymore but it was still suitable for making a technical drawing of it. Thanks to this solution I have been able to make a new leg from old oak wood.
