January 2021 - We recently completed an exciting project: repairing a William and Mary style dining table that once belonged to Henry Huttleston Rogers (1840-1909), the renowned oil magnate and benefactor of the town of Fairhaven, Massachusetts. This amazing piece of history was gifted from Rogers to the great-grandmother of our customer. The project involved painstaking reconstruction work, particularly to the damaged legs and feet. Scroll down for step-by-step views of the process!
