Restorers Without Borders is a furniture repair and restoration workshop. The staff is comprised of nine woodworking professionals who are skilled in all aspects of furniture restoration — structural repairs, stripping/refinishing, custom painting, hand-carving, upholstery, chair caning/rushing, gold-leafing…and more.
The workshop has been in existence for over 30 years. It began as a small two person group specializing in antique furniture restoration and provided woodworking skills supporting three retail antique import business storefronts. Clients of the antique business were afforded the opportunity to transform and modernize their old world purchases into pieces conforming to modern day usage — interior fit-outs of armoires and commodes to accommodate televisions and/or bathroom sinks, antique bed fit-outs to accept modern day queen size mattresses and box springs, custom paint finishes for client household decorating preferences, and the like.
There was a continuing demand of client requests for the workshop to expand its scope of services to include non-antique furniture items. Consequently, the workshop opened its doors to the public in 2008 and called itself ‘Restorers Without Borders.’ The expanded and newly formatted business has grown to embody a talented team of woodworking professionals and is often referred to as the city’s ‘Doctors of Furniture Repairs.’ The Company’s business focuses on all wood furniture items — new or old — and provides an array of services covering just about all client woodworking requests.
Happily, the entire staff works as a team and consults with one another on a continuing basis, thereby allowing a pooling of skills sets that furnishes customers with pleasing results. Client feedback continues to be overwhelmingly positive and unsolicited gleeful computer-posted reviews and remarks have been ever-expanding. The workshop happily informs its clientele that ‘customers swear BY US rather than AT US!
The entire Restorers Without Borders staff has often been described as ‘woodworking magicians,’ and it’s fair to say that these ‘magicians’ have yet to meet a woodworking project that defies their skills.
