About Us

For the better part of two decades, RPS has been providing high quality wood working and furniture repair and restoration. We offer a broad spectrum of capabilities, from minor furniture repairs to the complete design and building of custom furniture, wall units, and libraries.

Specialty work includes the preservation of fine and valued antiques, from investments to family heirlooms. This focus makes us uniquely qualified to handle a variety of wood working tasks.

Our craftsmen employ a broad range of skills in their work, many of which have been long forgotten. The arts of joinery, inlay, veneer application, carving, and lathe turning are all a part of our daily operations. The demands of accurate recreation or preservation of hand applied finishes finds us using many talents and techniques not found in most wood working shops.

Although recent projects have included Woodrow Wilson’s pool table, Cole Porter’s piano, and General Douglas McArthur’s desk, you are more likely to find Grandma’s sewing stand in our shop. Nothing is too small or The Boysunimportant.

Our unsurpassed furniture refinishing capabilities have made us a leader in the New York area. Whether it is an 18th century music box, or a modern 36′ corporate conference table, we’ve done it.

We are not limited to residential work. Since our doors opened in 1989, we have brought continuing high quality service to hotels such as The Waldorf-Astoria, The Hilton at Short Hills, The Plaza, The Drake, and many more. Other commercial clients include Cendant Corporation, Unilever, Johnson and Johnson.

If you have any questions about what we do best, what we do most, or what we plain enjoy doing, please feel free to call. Or Contact us Here

Things are tough here in NJ due to hurricane Sandy. We, at Restorations by Peter Schichtel wish to express our sympathy to anyone experiencing losses and would like to extend our services to anyone who may be in need of furniture repairs or woodwork restoration. We are presently reducing and in some cases completely eliminating our insurance estimate fees, in the effort to get things going again.
