How I Spent My Covid Vacation

My "Covid Vacation" began with parquetry floor repairs at the Eisenhower Building and an historic auditorium refinishing. Once these projects put me back in touch with my roots in antique furniture and musical instrument restoration, multiple opportunities for antique furniture repair materialized. The thread between these is the need to consider more than just aesthetics. In order for historic gems to last, sometimes we need to augment to strengthen original design flaws or mistakes made by other restorers. Longevity of the artwork and maintainability of finishes is equally crucial.
