We discovered eight original wooden corbels that had been hidden under aluminum siding for decades! While the corbels had been partially protected, we were told by a number of people that they could not be salvaged or restored. Since we had eight original samples, each of the Corbel design aspects was measured and digitized in AutoCAD. With the digital design in-hand we contacted more than a half dozen of fabrication mills and provided the file for quoting. Ultimately the eight Corbels were reproduced in white AZEK PVC by Randy Bouma at Whole Sale Millwork in Grand Rapids, MI. 49512. Randy was able to take the CAD drawing and calibrate the tool paths so the finished product would be exact.
