Refinishing

Our refinishing work is aimed at enhancing the natural color and grain of the wood through the integrated use of sanding, bleaching, staining, clear finishing, and waxing/oiling.  In addition, we have some experience with dyes and chemicals as an alternative to oil-based stain. We use the clear finish of your choice, but rely on our experience to help you select between oils, lacquers, and varnishes to best bring out the beauty of your furniture. We also repair and replace veneer.
