Furniture restoration

Had three pieces of mid-century veneer furniture restored. They partially sprayed one piece white too. They look great! And Jeff is a very knowledgeable, nice guy. Thanks Jeff! I’ll be back with my dining room set.

Stripping and refinishing vintage dresser

I was very impressed by Jeff’s knowledge and craftsmanship. I originally had hoped for a different finish, but was advised that the look I wanted to achieve was not possible with the type of wood used in the dresser. Although first disappointed, I was happy to follow Jeff’s lead as he showed me the alternatives and worked with me to get to a place I was happy with. To be honest, I think I’m happier with the way it turned out than with the original vision I had. A nice twist!

Fabulous group to work with! I'm so pleased!

After an antique wooden desk chair was damaged during a move, I wondered whether it could be repaired (it's certainly irreplaceable). I had *no* idea there were so many furniture repair options available in the GTA and wasn't quite sure where to start... but after some searching I saw that Wood Specialties had SO many good reviews (more than ANY other company!) and decided to take the chance and reached out to Jeff.
Well, I have to say, I am THRILLED with the repair and am so happy to have my chair back! But not only that, the level of professionalism, attention to detail, prompt and clear responses to my questions, and even patience while I sorted out transportation... working with Jeff has been a fabulous experience and although I wouldn't want to need his services again anytime soon, I would 100% without question work with him again. Kudos to Jeff and the Wood Specialties team! :D

Excellent, attentive work

Jeff was a pleasure to work with. He turned an old table into something beautiful; completely renewed the piece. He matched a small sample precisely and completed the work quickly and carefully.

Perfection

My solid wood dining table needed complete refinishing and repair due to many years of damage. After much searching, something about Jeff’s demeanour, thoughtful questions and explanations made me trust him especially compared to the ludicrously expensive and high pressure in-home tactics used by the major competitor. His price was reasonable based on many estimates (not the highest or lowest) and the timeline was more suitable. He was always professional, responsive and accomodating of collaboration to ensure complete satisfaction. The end product is truly gorgeous and perfect. My entire family feels that it looks even better than when we got it new! I would totally do all my wood refinishing jobs with Jeff. He and his crew are top notch.

Excellent Wood Refinishing

I have hired Jeff for 2 wood refinishing projects-- he is knowledgeable, skilled, and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him if you need a wooden piece of furniture refinished!

Refinished wood table

We damaged our beautiful new wood table just six months after getting it in the most ridiculous of circumstances. We finally bit the bullet and did the repair. Jeff was amazing. So helpful and willing to answer all questions throughout and did a fantastic job in restoring it. It looks just like new. Jeff and his team really took the time to do it right and was great to deal with all the way through.

Dining chairs refinish and reupholster

I had 4 antique dining chairs that needed to be refinished and reupholstered to match my dining table. Jeff was very easy to work with and did a beautiful job restoring these. Even though the chairs are mahogany, the new stain is almost an exact match to the table. I am very happy with the service, results and fast turnaround time. I would recommend him to anyone.

Expert repair and refinishing of wood furniture

Jeff and his team have repaired and refinished several pieces of antique furniture for me over the last couple of years. I cannot express how delighted I was with the results and how grateful I am to have found Jeff. I inherited several beautiful but damaged pieces of furniture from a beloved grandmother. Jeff literally brought them back to life. The first time I used Jeff's services, I almost couldn't believe the results. I gave him a battered, broken table (one that I feared was damaged beyond repair) and the item he returned to me was beautiful and whole. I simply cannot recommend Jeff highly enough. He is a pleasure to do business with and his work is absolutely beautiful.
