We are very proud and happy to let everyone know that we have , since June , been working on and completed major restoration work in the ” Old Main” at Delbarton School in Mendham , NJ. Our work consisted of restoration of all woodwork in the Main Lobby, Music Room , Stairway to the 2nd floor and the former Staff Dining area. We not only refinished all wood paneled walls and ceilings but we also replaced numerous missing components such as carvings , turnings and tons of moldings. We will be posting photos of the entire project shortly and we hope that everyone takes a moment to view this effort and appreciate this magnificent and historic landmark. Eric and Pete Schichtel

This Empire chest and side chairs display the dramatic contrast after a piece has been professionally and correctly restored. The Crotch Mahogany that was chosen for the drawer fronts now has the depth and clarity in which the maker intended. Careful restoration work should allow a piece to look it’s age but be in great condition as opposed to looking redone and new.
