The Rising Sun

Sunstone in pine with marbleized finish



The following are examples of restoration work.  Most of the pieces are nineteenth century examples of furniture made in the West prior to 1869, commonly called 'Mormon Furniture'.  This has expanded to include restoration of other furniture and objects.

Early Nineteenth Century Sacrament Stand - This piece was damaged and modified.  It was returned to somewhat original condition, the original mahogany painting and graining was over grained in quartersawn white oak, which the client wanted to maintain.

Chest of Drawers - This is a fine example with most of its original painted and grained finish still in tact.  Made of pine and painted and grained to imitate crotch mahogany.

Pair of Polychrome Side Chairs - This extremely rare example of polychrome is unique and the original color is even more amazing.  Made of pine and painted and striped. 

Late 19th Century Side Chair - This is an unusual example of a common chair that is usually made of oak.  This particular chair is made with birch seat, cresting rails and rungs, the uprights, legs and spindles are maple.

Victorian Walnut Side Chair - I was given this relic and have decided to do a complete restoration, as you will see from the pictures it will be quite a project.

Greek Vase - Sometimes in the restoration business one has to restore other objects.

A Pair of Ceramic Vases - One medium size with a broken rim and one large handled pot with broken base.

Queen Anne Hall Table - In really rough condition, this was cut apart for shipping and will be a challenge to restore.

Brigham Young Desk - This desk was restored a number of years ago, there are two originals known of four built in the 1850's.

Gentleman's Wardrobe - Documentation , illustrations and photograph provided for a restoration of this eighteenth century English piece.
