Nothing is to Small.

From the Smallest Chair to the Largest Dining Table.  From time to time the Furniture we use needs a little help. From Loose joints to Complete stripping and Refinishing. I can bring back pieces to their former glory. Every item that comes through my shop is treated to a thorough check. I take special care to use traditional methods and appropriate finishes for each piece.



Who dosen't like a challenge.

For those pieces  you may think are beyond help? You May be surprised what can be done.

I Love a challenge. From Carving to wood turning, re veneering, inlays, fabrication of missing parts,  preserving old finishes and patina.  Also stripping furniture. Probably the nastiest of jobs no one can really enjoy:) But it's a very important step and needs to be done correctly.

On Site Service.

Sometimes it makes sense to come to you. I do my very best to provide onsite services. From small touch ups and repairs to cleaning, waxing and some finishing.

Don't own a big truck? Not to worry I have you covered, I can pick up and deliver to your door. From San Francisco To Lake Tahoe, we can make it work.


A Dying Art.

I started my apprenticeship in England as a French Polisher. A process of finishing fine furniture, first used in the 18th century. Predominately on High end expensive Mahogany and Walnut furniture. No other finish comes close to the beautiful depth, clarity and softness of sheen. Every piece is then finished with wax to achieve the final effect.


Missing a leg on that old Table? I can turn you a replacement. Special care has to be taken here to replicate as close as possible to the original. Using the correct wood and finishing methods to match.


Next Steps...

Please feel free to call or email with any questions you may have. I look forward to talk to you and discuss all the options.

 Louis xv Walnut Bed.

The owners small dog decided to use this footboard as a chew toy. Before the owner could stop him, he had done quite a bit of damage. The effected areas were cleaned, flattened and new walnut glued in place, Then hand carved to match.

Pair of Walnut Chairs.

This lovely pair of chairs came in for re gluing and refinishing. One had a completely smashed and un savable front rail. After gluing in a replacement blank of walnut, I had to carve the detail in to match the other.


Walnut Dining Table.

I see a lot of Dining tables. especially around the holiday season. Over the years the leaves get misplaced or lost. I can make new ones and copy the detail through. They come in all shapes, sizes and styles, carved molding, ornate skirt or even inlayed.

Mahogany Bow front chest.

This Beautiful early 19th century chest of draws needed a little tlc and a refinish. After the foot was rebuilt and other inlay repairs carried out. The wood was carefully cleaned back and then refinished using the original French Polish technique.
