Furniture refinishing is just one more art form for me.  I work on
contemporary, as well as antique pieces.  In order to do the best

foot was damaged and had to be

The bottom of this very old piece
was completely worm hole ridden.  
It was necessary to reinforce it so
that it was strong enough to
receive the claw foot again.
