Wood Restoration


Wood Restoration is one of the more complex procedures in the field of antique furniture restoration. Before work can begin, the exact wood type must be identified to determine the appropriate techniques, solvents, finishes, and colors. There are also considerable physical strength demands on the laborer, the need for a number of tools, an ideal workspace with natural lighting, and storage space. For this reason professionals restorers should allways be consulted when restoring complex wood furniture items that are too heavy to lift, are missing parts or veneer, require upholstery removal, are valuable or have intricate carvings.

DF Conservation blends a passion for perfection with tasteful restraint in its wood furniture restoration and wood furniture repair of period and contemporary furniture, woodwork, and wooden architectural objects. Attention to detail and a respect for the integrity of a piece during the restoration process allow us to retain its original nature as much as possible.
