John Hulme – Carving and guilding

AN EYE FOR FINE DETAILS

This walnut cased spinet by Stephanus Keene, dated 1685, required much work to the soundboard, including its removal and refitting. This picture shows the rose which was entirely missing. I carved it in spruce, a soft timber requiring constant work to retain the finest sharp chisel edges.

I was very lucky, when an apprentice, to find and collect many early 20th century chisels by Addis & Herring among others – works of art in themselves.
