Repair and Refinishing

For specific projects that don’t require routine maintenance, we can help you. One-time repairs can be done either on-location or in our shop, depending on the type of the project and your preference. More extensive refinishing takes place off-site in our full refinishing shop located in Medina, MN.

Save Money

The cost of repairing and refinishing is typically far less than the cost of replacement. You’ll be amazed by the savings.

Reduce Waste

Get the most out of a product’s lifecycle; don’t just throw it away. If it’s wood, we can likely fix it for you.

Impress Guests

The care and attention you give to your business signal your care and attention to your clients. A clean, tidy environment makes an excellent first impression.

Preserve History

As wood restoration artisans, we hold true appreciation for this historic craft. Allow your woodwork to retain its original beauty with our quality finishing.

Before & After


What’s the difference between repair and refinishing?


Repair addresses a small section or several small sections of woodwork. It’s something that needs a bit of fixing up and is mostly cosmetic work.

Refinishing requires stripping off the existing finish, repairing any blemishes, and a restaining/resealing process.


Repair can usually be accomplished within a couple of hours.

Refinishing can take up to a couple days depending on the size of the item and its condition.


Repair is typically done with easily transported, common tools.

Refinishing requires power tools of all sizes and, for this reason, may have to be accomplished off-site.
