The Process


The old finish is carefully removed without losing any of the aged beauty in the wood. Stripping is the first important step in the refinishing process. Peter is proud to do all of the work himself.

The natural colors and hues are brought out in the refinishing process and the particular piece should never be refinished again. It will age very nicely.

Most antiques should not be refinished, if they have any patina.  Missing or loose veneers need to be fitted, glued and clamped correctly the first time.
