Refinishing Work |Structural Issues | Tighten/Re-glue | Table Top Repairs |Leaf repairs/refinishing |
Refinishing: We generally prefer to re-finish the whole table top rather than work on spot repairs. With refinishing, your table will be fully restored to a like brand-new condition/when it was originally made.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.
Character of the table: We will ensure the new finishes retain and reflect the character and appropriate age 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, old finishes, and signs of wear and tear.
Ensure Structural Integrity of the 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.
128″ Teak Table Restoration
Our Client desires to repair, refinish, and restore their 128-inch Indonesian Teak dining table. We made repairs to the cracks found on the top of the Client’s table. We poured epoxy (the same ones used on antique teak boats) to fill the cracks. The curing process is time-consuming and needs to be monitored. Each layer will have to be dried properly before adding on the next layer. Our client described the restored table top as a piece of art, more gorgeous than they can imagine for themselves.

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.

Hand-made Milk Paints
We refinished this Duncan Phyfe style table and bench. Our Client chose dark mahogany stain on the table top. On the base of the table and bench, we used hand-made milk paints to add a grey/white pull back to reveal a very subtle distressed look and showing bare wood in some areas.
