These courses include many details, techniques and tips not normally explained in contemporary books. The courses were created with information obtained from rare antiquarian books that explained and described the processes used to create antique furniture of the previous centuries. This included styles, types of woods, materials, fasteners, finishing techniques, finishing formulas, and joinery methods.
For the last 25 years, I have collected all types of antique furniture from many different countries which include: clocks, musical boxes and phonographs. Many of these items are waiting for some type of repair, restoration or conservation. Finishes on furniture are applied for protection and beautification of the wood surface. The original finishes on old antiques have special quality and beauty. Antique furniture left unattended will certainly deteriorate over time. Some conservation is necessary to preserve these fine antiques for their history and beauty.

Antique restoration is performing necessary restorative repairs. These include repairs to the structure, non-structural parts, repairs to the coating or finish which is necessary to continue protecting the wood. Applying protectorates to the existing finish will help prevent the negative effects of environmental factors.
