Overview

As long as you have the right equipment and materials, it’s not too difficult to recreate something that was lost. In this case, a wooden processional cross was constructed based off the designs contained in old photographs.

 

Summary

Two mid-sized wooden conference tables were brought in to have their gouges and scuff marked removed. The table tops were adorned with custom indented patterns. These designs would need to be carefully recreated by hand during the refinishing process.

 

Summary

An out-of-state church was in a bind regarding a piece of metalware. It was too large to fit into standard cases. Heritage manufactured a custom containment box to house this metal. This case had to be crafted in such a way that it could fit into a tight space for storage inside a tabernacle.

 

Summary

During some household cleaning, a furniture polish had eaten through a noticeable portion of this television cabinet top’s finish. Heritage Restoration took the cabinet and put it through a refinishing process. The remainder of the tabletop was cleared to create a uniform surface. This surface was then coated, in a process called staining, with the correct hue of brown. Afterwards, a protective coating known as a finish was applied on top of the stain. Finishes not only create a protective layer between the stain and the atmosphere, but they also increases the luster of the wood. After drying for twenty-four hours, the restored cabinet was delivered back to its owner.

 

Overview

An aged corner cabinet was given a face-lift in our refinishing room.

 

In Brief

Oil paintings are a beautiful medium for conveying a sense of location. That said, there will be times where paintings fade or otherwise deteriorate over time. In this particular case, this oil painting of a small coastal community’s boat dock is crumbling. The paint has lost adhesion to its canvas and is flecking off in thousands of small chips. The dire condition of this piece necessitated a multi-step process for Heritage’s staff to ensure the painting would survive for many more years.
