Antique Restoration
Any piece of old furniture was made well enough for us to repair and rejuvenate, no matter what itís current condition.  We begin by stripping off the old fabrics, filling, and springs, in order to work our magic.  Loose joints in the frame are opened and glued, then clamped.  Broken dowels are replaced and breaks or cracks in the wood are repaired.

     The seat gets rebuilt, starting with new webbing.  Springs are installed, and tied meticulously with double twines in each direction and cross twines for security and strength.  Burlap, wooden slats contoured to the shape of the frame, and fox-edge finish off the platformís preparation.  The webbing is attached to the back and arms for support of the stuffing, which is put into place as the new fabric is carefully base-tacked, then stapled into place.  Double welt, gimp, or decorative nails expertly finish the job after touch-up of the wood, if necessary.
