This is a hands-on business and I have never found a single situation in which texting was efficacious for resolving or totally describing an issue. It works well to make an initial contact.
The shop is at 3321 Stoney Square just north of the San Antonio Airport.
I am really bad about photographing stuff so there are few records of the many hundreds of items that have been refinished and/or repaired. That is especially true of the things that have been done in a customer's home. If I don't photograph it, nobody else will.
In addition, some things just don't photograph very well. The subtle differences in the finish of a dining room table are difficult to present. It might drive a customer crazy but not show up in a photo.
The piece of furniture that most often shows up in the shop is a chair. Chairs are asked to do a lot of things and are subjected to the most stress. In addition, some chairs are just poorly designed. Style dominates over function with some manufacturers.
This was a project dubbed 'The Monster' because it took over both the shop and my living room. It was a German sideboard, more or less, that was damaged by water.
The unit was wrapped in paper by movers and then sat in a flooded garage for several months. When the owners returned from a military deployment, they found what you see here. It was about as big a mess as any of us have ever seen. It had to be structurally repaired and the finish repaired. It took a lot of veneer.
This has been on the website for a while and the owner finally got some pictures of it finished and assembled. They need some enhancement to show properly and that will happen soon. (Nov. 2013)
