When I first laid eyes on this LV Damier, I had to take a double take. As you can see from the first photo, it looked as though a raccoon had been locked inside, who decided to dig its way out through the lid! To add insult to injury, a similar hole was gouged through the bottom panel But I've always believed that all LV's are worth a second chance...and at it I went. I carefully (and squarely) cut the affected areas away with a dremmel saw and then fit the two gapes with planed poplar, front to back. Pulling some of the checkered exterior fabric from the foundation gave me enough to patch over my work and I aligned this fix with the existing pattern(s). If you take a close look, you can see where my work started, and whenit ends, but at least there is now a damier that won't be swept under the rug.
