40 Years Experience

We've been contructing and crafting furniture since 1979. With this level of experience we know where the pitfalls lie and can be confident in handeling the often delicate and precarious situations that arise when restoring unique antique furniture.


In addition to the woodworking involved in restoring antiques, we also provide reupholstery services. With an antique chair or couch, the frame is only half the story. You can be sure that with a restoration project from us the fabric gets the proper treatment as well.

Antique Restoration

Our furniture brings enrichment to your daily life with individual designs that are professionally hand-crafted. Each piece demonstrates beauty, integrity, durability and refinement that is unique and will last for centuries for you and yours.
