There are many qualified crafts people out there to do the work, but the vital question of what kind of work should be done is often ignored.

However, if it's a dirty 1900's rolltop that has seen better days, of course I will refinish it!

If a client wants a Philadelphia highboy or tall case N.H. clock stripped and refinished, I'll begin a lesson on the many reasons why that just shouldn’t be done!

It is a responsibility to own such pieces and decisions can’t be made carelessly. We would need to discuss conservation - in other words, stabilizing and preserving the piece as it is today.

I provide everything to do with the wood: re-gluing, major and/or minor wood replacement and/or rebuilding, spindles, rockers, side rails, finials, carvings, veneer, moldings, etc.

Complete refinishing or cleaning and over finishing, perfect color blending and replacement are all options to be considered.

I am happy to estimate jobs either on location or by images through email.
