Well, once again where does the time go? I did the restorations last winter on my 3 weight Altdeutsch Vienna as I discussed in my last blog (about a year and a half ago). Using a mild abrasive cleaner (Maguire's #7), some rags and a toothbrush, I cleaned the deep down dirt from the case. I replaced the top applique with a proper carving. Then I stained and touched up the finish where it had worn or been otherwise damaged. Below are a few pictures with captions.
