Tender loving care of a vintage wooden clock

I was heartbroken this summer when a vintage clock I inherited from my father after he passed away fell from our wall, seriously damaging the points on the diamond-shaped wooden frame. I entrusted Jeff with the repair of the clock and held my breath, not seriously believing it could actually be restored. To my ever-lasting gratitude and delight, not only did Jeff repair the damage sustained when the clock fell (Jeff's repair work is literally invisible), he was able to repair a number of other nicks and scratches that the clock had suffered through its 50+ years of love in our family (as well as several moves). On top of all that he was able to clean the entire wooden surface and refinished it beautifully. It now looks as fresh and as beautiful as it did when I was a kid. Thank you so much Jeff for doing such a beautiful job. I can't thank you enough.

Jeff and his team did a great job refinishing my dining table in the darker stain that I wanted, and were truly a pleasure to deal with. Would choose them again!

A Difficult Piece (an Ornate Picture-Frame) Beautifully Refurbished! Thank You!

We have a beautiful wooden picture-frame, which someone had painted with an ugly wall paint that masked the beauty of the wood grain. Jeff and his team removed all the wall paint from it, stained it perfectly to match our surrounding furniture, with the wood sample I provided, and put a nice lacquer on it. This brings out the true beauty of the frame, and both my Mom and I couldn't be more pleased with it. They did it fairly quickly, and charged us a very fair price, for the amount of work required. It wasn't an easy piece to refurbish, due to the intricate structure of the carved wood. We are very glad we turned to them for help to have this unique piece refurbished, and we thank them very much. The first two photos are of the frame before it was refurbished, and the last three of it afterwards, with its painting back in place. We are grateful to Jeff and his team. They truly are master craftsmen. Jeff even went out of his way to deliver it to me at an agreed upon location and to wrap it nicely so it wouldn't get damaged during transport. My Mom is amazed and says it now looks, "Like new!" even though it's quite old.

Refurbish Dining Sideboard

Jeff was such a pleasure to deal with. Their work transforming an old dining sideboard to a beautiful TV console table was amazing. I would highly recommend Wood Specialties and definitely use them again!

Reglued corner of dining room table and removed white water stain from antique tea table. Also made a template for the tea table for possible glass protector

The work was done in a very professional manner in our home.

He responded to my original enquiry in a timely manner and scheduled within the week to do the work. Jeff and his partner are great to work with. Years of experience and real appreciation

Refinished wood desk

Jeff refinished and restored an old desk that used to be my father's - it turned out beautifully. Along with the great craftsmanship came a lovely customer service experience. I would use Jeff again in a heartbeat.

Front Door Restoration

I recently had our old front door refinished by Jeff and his team, and we are so pleased with the results. It was covered in coats of old paint and had seen better days, but we were keen to keep the charm of the old door - the result is better than we could have imagined. Friendly and timely service, fair prices and beautiful workmanship means we won't hesitate to use Jeff's services again!

I would highly recommend Wood Specialties!

Kitchen Cabinet Door Re-Finishing

My custom, solid oak cabinet doors were 20 years old and in need of re-finishing. I was OK with the colour, but the varnish was worn and dull.
After contacting several contractors and contacting referrals, I settled on Wood Specialities.
Jeff listened carefully to my requirements. I removed my own doors and hardware, then dropped them off at Jeff's shop. He completed the work on-schedule and the results were better than I could have imagined.
As a fellow woodworker, I appreciated Jeff's passion and attention to detail. This project was too big for me to handle and I'm glad that there are professionals like Jeff around to rely on.
