Welcome to

OUR PROJECTS

Have a look at some of our BEFORE and AFTERS. We will show you what a complete restoration should be.  Which means your pieces should look great, and work properly. If your piece still has retained some of it's Original Finish and works properly, we can do a French Wax. Which consists of, cleaning, conditioning,  and waxing of your piece. This will keep all the character of your piece and is a lot more cost effective than a complete restoration. Please look below for example of the Before and After's of French Waxing of our customer pieces.
