Wooden Furniture repairs, Pretoria
"Lood" approached me, He had a table that had immense sentimental value to him, It was the first real piece of solid wood furniture he had bought. I arrived and found a glorious oregon pine table that had been turned into fire wood by the movers. It wouldn't fit down a passage way and in true, "hy het nie a ma nie, hy sal gaan" fashion the movers tried to pursuade an item that measured 750mm to go through a hole that measured only 740mm. Lood was broken hearted, but I looked at the pile of timber and said, If it cannot be fixed, my training was in vain.
When I finished the project Lood was in tears, this time of joy. The moral of this tale is let me look at it before you chuck it out, The worst case scenario is that I will take away the wood for you if it's beyond repair or not economically feasible to repair.
