A Difficult Piece (an Ornate Picture-Frame) Beautifully Refurbished! Thank You!

We have a beautiful wooden picture-frame, which someone had painted with an ugly wall paint that masked the beauty of the wood grain. Jeff and his team removed all the wall paint from it, stained it perfectly to match our surrounding furniture, with the wood sample I provided, and put a nice lacquer on it. This brings out the true beauty of the frame, and both my Mom and I couldn't be more pleased with it. They did it fairly quickly, and charged us a very fair price, for the amount of work required. It wasn't an easy piece to refurbish, due to the intricate structure of the carved wood. We are very glad we turned to them for help to have this unique piece refurbished, and we thank them very much. The first two photos are of the frame before it was refurbished, and the last three of it afterwards, with its painting back in place. We are grateful to Jeff and his team. They truly are master craftsmen. Jeff even went out of his way to deliver it to me at an agreed upon location and to wrap it nicely so it wouldn't get damaged during transport. My Mom is amazed and says it now looks, "Like new!" even though it's quite old.

Refurbish Dining Sideboard

Jeff was such a pleasure to deal with. Their work transforming an old dining sideboard to a beautiful TV console table was amazing. I would highly recommend Wood Specialties and definitely use them again!

Reglued corner of dining room table and removed white water stain from antique tea table. Also made a template for the tea table for possible glass protector

The work was done in a very professional manner in our home.

He responded to my original enquiry in a timely manner and scheduled within the week to do the work. Jeff and his partner are great to work with. Years of experience and real appreciation

Refinished wood desk

Jeff refinished and restored an old desk that used to be my father's - it turned out beautifully. Along with the great craftsmanship came a lovely customer service experience. I would use Jeff again in a heartbeat.

Front Door Restoration

I recently had our old front door refinished by Jeff and his team, and we are so pleased with the results. It was covered in coats of old paint and had seen better days, but we were keen to keep the charm of the old door - the result is better than we could have imagined. Friendly and timely service, fair prices and beautiful workmanship means we won't hesitate to use Jeff's services again!

Repair & refinishing of dining room hutch

I recently had my 1930 dining room hutch repaired and refinished by Wood Specialties and was very pleased with the work done. When I went to see the finished piece at the shop I was absolutely stunned at how beautiful the piece had turned out and the excellent workmanship. Jeff was so pleasant and helpful to deal with.
I would highly recommend Wood Specialties!

Kitchen Cabinet Door Re-Finishing

My custom, solid oak cabinet doors were 20 years old and in need of re-finishing. I was OK with the colour, but the varnish was worn and dull.
After contacting several contractors and contacting referrals, I settled on Wood Specialities.
Jeff listened carefully to my requirements. I removed my own doors and hardware, then dropped them off at Jeff's shop. He completed the work on-schedule and the results were better than I could have imagined.
As a fellow woodworker, I appreciated Jeff's passion and attention to detail. This project was too big for me to handle and I'm glad that there are professionals like Jeff around to rely on.

Dining Table and Chairs refinishing

Our dining set is an original Gibbard Queen Anne style table and chairs made from mahogany. It is classically beautiful and a family heirloom from 30 years ago but needed some TLC and to be transformed in a way that suited our home and more updated style. Jeff completed this work exceptionally! Customer service and timeliness from start to finish were wonderful. Most importantly, we are thrilled with the final result...it is modern but pays homage to the quality of the pieces. His patience with us in choosing an appropriate finish was exemplary and appreciated- we love the soft grey look. The work speaks for itself and we would recommend Jeff and his services to anyone.

Dining room table

My dining room table had heat damage, drink rings, and looked terrible. I had to always cover it with a cloth to hide the damage. Due to a recent move, I decided to get it refinished and was very fortunate to find Jeff. He did a fantastic job and the table looks brand new. It belonged to my grandmother and hasn't ever been refinished and it probably looks even better now than when she bought it. I am so pleased. If you are looking to refinish your furniture, look no further than Jeff at Wood Specialties.

Broken antique dining room chair

I have a set of 4 antique chairs and one has been broken a couple of times before - this time, we were afraid it was unfixable but I found Jeff and he fixed it so beautifully - that when I put it in the dining room and asked my family to identify which one had been broken, they couldn't identify the right one!

I recommend Jeff for his craftsmanship, integrity - he had it finished when he said - and the ease of doing business.
