My client Margo Baxley had her home remodeled in 2006, with all new cabinetry custom made by a cabinet shop, she wanted me to finish all the woodwork as she had been so pleased with my work before. All the pieces were hand finished and hand-rubbed in the workshop, the finish consisted of sealer coats, fine sanding, and then satin lacquer coats applied, hand rubbed and lemon oiled, reassembled and installed. The client wrote this letter for me:
“I have been asked for a recommendation for Mark Fry and his company – Museum Quality Restoration Services. I am pleased to do so without reservations.
Eight years after my original work at Margo Baxley’s home some of the woodwork had become water damaged in one of the bathrooms, and the rest of the finishes also needed a refresh. I was commissioned to restore the woodwork.
This Door restoration in Coachella Valley is by Mark Fry of Museum Quality Restoration Services, antique and furniture restoration experts since 1970.
Check out the project gallery to see the results. Since this antique restoration was done MQRS has begun documenting all work with photos, showing the process from start to finish. This keeps customers better informed of the progress of their orders.
