Jordan from Moorestown NJ wanted to keep a family sofa and some chairs from the 1970’s. But they would need a transformation to fit into her more modern design scheme. A complete makeover brought her vision home!

Most Popular Furniture Finish 2017

We went through last year's projects and found that this 'paint-and-glaze' style finish was most frequently requested. Generally an off-white base lacquer with a soft grey or pewter toned glaze and a satin clear coat.

We first offered this combination back in 2009, we nicknamed it 'scrimshaw' from the old whaler's scenes scratched into whale teeth and highlighted with oil lamp soot.

Here is a detail from an old wardrobe done with the scrimshaw finish - at work in this New Jersey home.

Stickley Oak Table Refinished

This solid white oak plank table was a pleasure to refinish! The quality wood brought out our sense of craft.

The original finish was worn away at the edges and had scratched dull spots in several places. We removed that finish with light solvents by hand. Then lightly sanded the bare wood to prepare for a thin wash of a dye stain to establish the background color.

After a few thin coats of sealer, we applied a wash stain based around raw umber to accent the pores and complete the color. A satin sheen topcoat of Valspar Ultra lacquer gave the final 'tight' look and durable protection.

The table was too big to fit through the door in one piece, so we re-assembled it after carefully carrying it in in pieces. Now it has a fresh face in this Moorestown, NJ home for some very nice folks to enjoy for the holidays!

Exercise Equipment Pad Mock-Ups

Hand rendered set of pads for physical therapy exercise equipment. Proof-of-concept for the engineering team on a new equipment design. 1" plywood base, 1" closed cell foam, Nytek face fabric. The foam was so dense we pattern routed it with the same templates we made for the plywood. Next step - production prototypes with all the dies, jigs and CNC programming loaded in. Fingers crossed that the production runs don't run away from us to somewhere overseas.
