John worked on a Dining Room table we "inherited" with a home purchase. It had what appeared to be a 3-4 inch cigar burn. The work was excellent and you cannot see any disfigurement in the wood.
Beautiful work - I had a walnut dresser just like that, sold it before moving to Florida - wish I still had it. John thank you for sharing your site.

Tip of the month - Is it Solid Wood?
In our profession, we run into this type of situations quite frequently. We get a call for an inspection and an estimate, only to realize that furniture piece in question, is not even made out of solid wood. It's made out of stuff that mimics solid wood, but it's not solid wood. Do we work on such pieces? 99 times out of 100, we don't, simply because it's not worth it for the client. The same applies for do-it-yourself projects. If something is not made out of solid wood, you may just be better off buying a new item.


Here is an original holiday gift idea. Have a piece of furniture restored to it's original beauty. Your spouse will be amazed, you will be happy about how you spent the money, and it will be a gift that keeps on giving, for years to come!
