We invite client participation in the antique conservation process, and welcome visits to our shop to clarify and guide our craftsmen to obtain the desired result.

We will not insert a dowel (or worse, a nail) into an antique mortise-and-tenon joint that will compromise a tenon function for a cheap "glue job" some might call a restoration? We will not inject glue into the joints of a loose doweled chair (when nothing short of complete disassembly, cutting off and drilling out of old dowels, and reinstallation of newer, larger dowels is necessary to obtain the original longevity of the chair joinery.

No matter how complicated or how poor the condition, no conservation treatment is beyond our expert grasp. Our European cabinetmakers perform complicated, intricate marquetry work, carvings, and joinery, on wood that is in good condition, or suffering from smoke or fire damage, or the ravages of powder post beetles.
