“We have had the pleasure of working with Tim over the past four years. In that time he has repaired numerous family heirlooms.

One particularly special piece was my grandfather’s childhood rocking chair. It was found in a barn covered with thick coats of peeling paint,the caning on the seat was broken and it was rickety and unstable. Being over one hundred years old and belonging to my beloved grandpa, I couldn’t imagine trusting it’s repair to anyone else! Tim maintained its authentic antique quality while strengthening it and bringing out the beauty of the old wood. It has become the focal point of the room. It is now strong enough for generations of grandchildren and friends to come. ”

Tim is a true woodcraft artisan. He has repaired and restored several pieces of furniture in our home over the past 6 years, including our beloved entry Dutch door, which takes a beating from the weather. Tim is meticulous in his workmanship, his attention to detail; he shows up when he says he will, completes the work in a timely manner, and he has a delightful sense of humor.

We always get the feeling he loves our furniture as much as we do.

Tim, thank you for bringing back to life three special pieces of furniture! All were passed down through the family and your amazing work has made them focal points in our home again. Your repair of my great, great grandmothers rocker allows us to use it again! The repairs made it solid, but no one would know you took it apart to do it. You did a great job!
We also appreciate your extensive knowledge of wood and finishes – and guiding us in making choices to bring out the quality of the other two pieces. We are very, very pleased with the results of the refinishing you did on each.
We loved working with you!

Many thanks,


Kerry Del Mar

Can’t say enough great things about Tim and his workmanship. He worked extensively at my home over several months refinishing/staining/and lacquering fireplace mantels, double front doors with sidelights and an entire staircase and wood entry surrounding the master bedroom. Old wood or new, his workmanship was outstanding and his dedication to detail and pride in his work was evident throughout.

I would recommend him to anyone for any task. A true craftsman. Honest, dependable, and professional. Simply the best one can find in this field.
