Wood Finishes

We have extensive experience in wood finish conservation including: cleaning, conservation, finish analysis, touch up, finish matching and refinishing of shellac, varnish, lacquer, French polish, wax and oil finishes. The rich luster and depth of an old wood finish is an essential component of any historic interior. Frequently older finishes are stripped and replaced due to cosmetic blemishes.  By employing careful cleaning and conservation techniques, we are able to eliminate blemishes while maintaining the beauty of original finishes.  Often minor wood repairs and finish restoration can transform the appearance of balustrades, and panel systems. We can match old woods, remove stains and scratches. We can also restore and repair architectural columns and capitals and perform epoxy consolidation to original damaged woodwork.
