We just received 2 tables back today. A Harvest-style kitchen table and a 150 yr + family heirloom dining room table that seats 16 + people! Reviews are spotty on some websites so I had some misgivings. The dining table was of great emotional significance to us. A childhood table from South Africa - it was gifted to us 27 years ago as a wedding present from my late parents. Over the years - and through climate changes from Africa to Canada - it has been badly battered. Scratches, heat, warping and fading. 4 massive leaves, an old crank system and many decades of wonderful memories swirled around this table. My Father's wish was always "when we could afford it" to have this table restored to its original grandeur. We finally took the plunge and the older sales man - David - did a great job convincing us that 5K would be well spent on this big job. And they would refinish the top of our kitchen "Harvest Table" as well. The big day arrived and the 2 tables were returned TODAY. WOW! The dining table is nothing short of magnificent! This huge beast is so beautiful now - nary a heat or scratch mark/ missing chunk of wood/warp/any damage visible. Beautiful rich even colour tone across the table + leaves. Formerly faded legs - rich and full again. We are over the moon! The kitchen table looks brand new! It had been faded and scratched by raising 3 kids and now looks as lovely as the day we purchased it. TMC, Tino, Restorers, Delivery Chaps and Team - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I am a fan and could not be more pleased. My wife actually had tears in her eyes as she looked at the dining table. We could not be more pleased. What a first rate job and worth every penny of the $5000.00 Keep up the good work. I take great pleasure in highly recommending this amazing company.

Thanks Howard, for your amazing - & very well-written I might add - review! We truly appreciate the detail you included & for articulating the way we attach important memories to the furniture we grow up with. It's true, depending on the condition of pieces (level of neglect, environmental factors etc.) the cost of quality furniture restoration can be high. But you will not regret your decision to restore this heirloom from SA. New furniture just doesn't measure up. You have honoured your fathers wish & TMC Restoration is thrilled to have played a part. Thanks again for trusting us with this important project! (If you are so inclined, please post a comment on our Facebook or Google page. Your comments matter to us.)
