You can decide if you wish to (a) repair, re-finish, and restore, or (b) design & construct a new piece, or (c) build a replica piece of the furniture (e.g. a chair). We provide full services for each of these options. Work is performed by our master artisan whose craftsmanship is trusted by museums nationwide, and his team.
Our most common requests are: to re-finish and restore antique and heirloom tables, chairs (including upholstery work) and furniture treasured by the families. The quality of our work on a refinished piece is unparalleled and will far exceed your expectations. We want to help preserve the original character of the furniture, restore them to their former glory (like-new condition), yet maintain the aged look (especially for pieces that are 50 years or older). We understand when our Clients are motivated to restore their furniture, they want to preserve memories of their loved ones and times spent together.

Typical Scope of Work
Re-finishing a piece of furniture: We generally prefer to re-finish the whole table top, the whole chair, or other furniture (desk, dresser, cabinet, chest of drawers, etc.) rather than work on spot repairs. With re-finishing, your pieces will be fully restored to a like brand-new condition/when it was originally made. If you own a period piece, we can appropriately aged it and at the same time show you have given it loving care over the years. You can expect the new finishes to match the original color used on the furniture. Re-finishing work can last a lifetime if handled with proper care.
Character of the table: If desired by the Client, we make sure the character of the table remains intact. By character, we mean preserving all the signs of unique use such as dents, scratches, rubbed elements, chips, puppy bites, etc. We will work with Client to achieve desired results. For the table top, we can remove any unsightly stains, dents, scratches, cigar burns, grime, old polishes, and signs of wear and tear while retaining the top’s original look.
Ensure Structural Integrity of table: We will assess the table’s underpinning structure and perform work, if necessary, to ensure all components are in good working order and are furnishing adequate support to the table. We will ensure all hardware and leaf receiving mechanism are in good condition.
Common requests: Most of the time, structural joints of the chair require tightening; Re-attaching a broken leg; Even if you bring a chair that has broken into pieces, we can put it back together (replace broken dowels, re-glue, replace missing wood).
To save costs, you may wish to bring in the chair/(s) to our retail store at 1121 King St, Alexandria, Va. To be sure we are present when you arrive, please call 703-838-8452 to let us know you are coming. Repairs will be completed at our Baltimore workshop.

17th Century Spanish Walnut Table Restoration
Our Client desires to refinish and restore the surface of his desk, a period piece dating back to the 1600s. For the top, our Client would like to retain the 17th century character of the desk and make it look like the piece has been well-taken care of over the years. Our Client is not seeking perfection. He wants to remove any old polishes and/or finishes to reveal the beauty of the wood, grains, knots, etc. The new finishes will match the original color used on the desk and while reflecting wear since the mid 17th Century.
