Fire Damage

Collecting rooms of matching golden oak furniture required decades.  But shortly after their new home was completed, a fire almost consumed them.  Declared a loss by the insurance company, the homeowners chose restoration rather than a cash settlement and beginning the collection again.

The more than two dozen pieces included a dining room table with leaves and cabinets.  All had water and smoke damage and some were seriously charred.  Golden oak furniture was a mass produced style in tribute to the expensive Craftsman Style.  They share solid wood elements and construction.  This allowed the 1/8" or so of burn to be scraped away to reveal clean wood.  All original parts were retained.  The water damage required a complete refinishing.  The original colors and finishes did not match but now it was possible to stain them all the same.
