Contrary to conventional wisdom the life of a handyman is not filled to the brim with limousines and red carpets.
Most jobs are routine patch-and-plaster fixit repairs invisible when complete.
Note the circular column bases and column repair blanks were not turned on a lathe but cut on a table saw, or in some cases a radial arm saw and dressed with a router.
I have never used a miter chop saw to cut circular blanks but it would probably work as well.
So here in no particular order are examples of some repairs and restorations which are normally unnoticeable when finished.
