As a cabinetmaker, I have spent a great deal of time studying the art of turning wood. As far as furniture is concerned I am capable of turning exact replicas of missing spindles, finials, wooden knobs, or whatever the job calls for. I also specialize in custom turned pieces such as bowls, plates, candelabras, and boxes. These pieces are turned out of a variety of woods and styles. If you have an idea in mind for an heirloom piece, I will create it for you! Examples of my turned work can be viewed in my photo gallery under the heading of Turning.

If your furniture has damaged carving I can repair the missing portion and carve it to match the existing carving. I also can replace missing parts to a piece such as finials and rosettes. All carvings are matched using stain and finish to blend in with the original. I also offer custom carving such as a relief carving and carving on turned pieces and will work with you on a specific design if desired.

Cane and Rush Seat Replacement
I offer replacement of cane and rush seating that will match the style of the original seat. If desired, the cane can be toned ( for example to match other seats in a set.)

Upholstery Services
I work with several upholsterers in the area who have a wide selection of fabrics and patterns to choose from. When a customer desires new upholstery for the furniture I will check the finish and structural integrity of the piece and perform any repairs necessary prior to the application of the new upholstery. I will then give the restored piece to the upholsterer to cover.

Leather and Felt Replacement
I offer replacement of leather and felt for desk tops and writing surfaces. I also will line drawers with felt or pacific cloth for storage of silver.

Glass Replacement
If you have glass missing from a piece of furniture I can cut glass to fit the piece. In the case of older pieces, I will try to match the existing glass if it has waves or bubbles in it. I also can provide glass with a softened edge for table desk tops. I can also replace mirror glass if desired.

Hardware Polishing and Replacement
If the hardware on your furniture is dull I can remove it, clean and polish it. If you are missing hardware or would like new hardware for your furniture, I can order and install hardware to suit your needs.
