          Full Restoration

          Our Restore level of service is the crème de la crème of our wood restoration services. When we are conducting this service on a piece, we are completely restoring it, in its entirety. From repairs to broken legs or loose veneer, fabrication of moldings, and regluing of joinery, to removing the finish by hand, (not dip stripping) to hand sanding, hand staining and finishing. This comprehensive service restores a piece to the best condition possible.  This produces a showroom quality result to even the most deteriorated pieces and will last for decades upon decades with proper care.

          • Disassemble

          • Remove finish

          • Evaluate piece for repairs

          • Reglue joints

          • Repair veneer or re-veneer surface if needed

          • Fill dents that are too deep to sand out

          • Ensure doors and drawers work as best possible

          • Hand sanding

          • Staining to any color

          • Finishing with best quality lacquer

          • Hardware polished/partial polished



          Our Refinish level is designed for pieces that have not deteriorated structurally or on sub-surface levels. For example, newer furniture that has been damaged or worn, or older furniture that needs refinished but does NOT need repairs, regluing of joints, repair of veneer, etc.  We hand strip, hand sand, stain and finish the piece, producing beautiful results and a finish that will last many years.

          • Disassemble

          • Remove finish by hand

          • Hand sanding

          • Hand staining to standard colors or original

          • Finishing

          • Hardware cleaned



          Our Preserve level of service is ideal for wood furniture with a finish that is still in decent condition and there are no deep scratches or dings that are through the finish into the wood that would require a full restoration. For example, if we did a Preserve level of service on an end table, it would include the following:

          • Disassembly

          • Solvent Wash

          • Wet-sanding if needed

          • Touchup dents and scratches

          • Recoat part or all of piece

          • Refinish part of piece if specifically designated in notes



          Our Repair level of service is perfect for furniture that only needs minor repairs such as:

          • Localized repair / touchup

          • Doweling and other reinforcement

          • Re-glue of joints if designated in notes
