Finished Projects

Bar - Smiley's Schooner Saloon

This older bar in West Marin was completely refinished in 1979 with my partner when we were Antique Refinishing. Stripped, sanded and sealed thoughout. We replaced the color and layered multiple coats of wear resistant varnish. No additional upkeep to the finish has been applied since.

Dining Room Set

1922 walnut dining room set built by Paine Furniture restored

Custom House
11 Wolf Back Ridge

These wall panels and beams previously had a gray textured paint with deep grain penetration. There were also many patches, deep gouges and holes throughout.
A blend of old and new redwood. The challenge was to provide custom uniformity of color with enhanced grain presentation to the walls, beams, trim and entranceway. You may visit for more photos and info. regarding this project.
