            Platinum Level

            Full Restoration

            Our Platinum furniture restoration service is the crème del a crème of our wood restoration services. When we are conducting this service on a piece, we are completely restoring it, in its entirety. From removing the finish by hand, (not dip stripping) to hand sanding, hand staining and finishing. It is a perfect solution for pieces where the wood and finish are severely damaged--the only recourse is a platinum service. This produces a showroom quality result and will last for decades upon decades with proper care.

            • Disassemble

            • Remove all finish by hand

            • Hand Sanding

            • Hand Staining

            • Choose stain color or match sample

            • Hardware Replaced

            • Hardware Polished

            • Reassemble

            Gold Level

            Refinish Top & Refurbish Base

            Our Gold level service includes a complete refinish and restoration of one surface of a piece that may be in poor condition.
            For example, if we were to do a Gold Service on your dining room table, we’d be refinishing the top only and touch up the legs and apply a clear coat of finish to ensure the continuity of color and sheen across the table.

            • Disassemble

            • Solvent Wash

            • Hand staining to match color

            • Hardware polished

            • Remove finish by hand, of one area such as the top

            • Hand sanding

            • Finishing of top and base to match

            • Reassemble

            Silver Level


            Our Silver level 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 silver service on an end table, it would include the following:

            • Cleaning

            • Solvent wash/prepare finish

            • Touch up scratches

            • Match color

            • Finishing entire piece, clear coat with lacquer, shellac, oil, or beeswax

            • Hardware cleaned

            Bronze Level


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

            • Minor touch-ups to surface level scratches, dents, or dings in the finish or paint—this can be in your home or in-shop, depending on the severity.

            • Re-glue of a slightly loose joint

            • Minor drawer repair for one drawer
