In June 2014 my daughter inherited her great Aunt’s (my aunts) Duncan Phyfe Dining Room Set that had been in the family since the 1920’s. The set was not only in structural disrepair but had such deep scratches and gouges that we did not know whether to refinish it or donate it to charity. After much thought we decided to keep because it was a family heirloom which brought back many memories. Once the above decision was made we started the process to find a furniture refinisher. After much research it was decided to go with Wehrli Furniture as we were certain that they truly understood our love for the furniture and our desire to bring it back to its past grandeur. We asked Wehrli to take their time as we wanted the best job possible. During the refinishing process Wehrli ensured that my daughter reviewed the work at select intervals before proceeding, especially when it came to the selection of the stain and the finish of the handles and decorative trimmings. When the job was completed we were amazed at how beautiful the set looked especially the original hardware. My brother-in-law, who is a woodworker, could not believe the transition. Based on the above experience we had Wehrli refinish three other pieces of my family’s furniture with equally great results. I whole heartedly recommend Wehrli when it comes to the restoration and refinishing process.
Recently I did some remodeling at my house. Of course with remodeling comes new furniture. Of course with remodeling and new furniture comes the issue of going over budget. Since I saw the inevitable coming I decided to look at my furniture options again. I decided that instead of replacing all my furniture, I would refinish some of the pieces I still loved. I called 3 companies and chose Wehrli. I LOVE MY REFINISHED furniture. First, I asked them not to just refinish my shelving units, I asked them to MATCH it to my new furniture. It is spot on! It was a multiple step process and I would swear that I got a new piece of furniture from the manufacturer. Paul and Dan are artisans and they take great care over the pieces they are entrusted to revive. True professionals, they not only refinished my pieces, they set them up on delivery, leveled them, plugged in the built in lighting, wiped them down, and made sure they were ready to go. I received touch up paint and instructions on how to apply it since it was a special process. I highly, highly recommend them to paint any furniture. They love a challenge. Don’t be afraid to call them with any project you have.
We wanted to take a moment and send this thank you for the wonderful rebuild/refinishing job you performed on our bedroom set. As you knew, it was my Mom and Dad’s set that I had been given years ago. We had started to refurbish it some time ago, refinishing only the nightstand. I knew after I saw how that piece came out that I wanted to refinish the whole set but have not had the money to do the other pieces until now. We are very pleased with our finished product!! Stain color is superb!! The polished original brass hardware is beautiful! So glad we could re-use that. We would certainly recommend Wehrli Woodworking (and have already) to any one wanting refinish or repair work done to their treasures. Again, thank you for doing such a great job.
As owners of a high-end consignment shop, there are often occasions where a lovely piece of furniture needs a “bit of love” to bring it back to life. Or, when an out of date style needs a slight overhaul to make it relevant once again. That is when we reach out to the gentlemen at Wehrli Wood Refinishing. Paul does a magnificent job of repair and refinishing! Not only does he do a beautiful job with wood items, but they truly are a full service facility, offering re-styling, re-upholstery and, really, anything else one would require for home furnishing. The best part, however, is that the service is beyond compare! I have worked with many a refinisher in my days, and not one holds a match to the professionalism and follow through of this company. They are and will continue to be our number one referral for refinishing needs!
The Perfect Thing
The pew seat cushions in our 1855 church building were overdue in needing reupholstering. Wehrli Furniture Company was recommended by the firm where we purchased our fabric to install the material. Wehrli removed the seats from our twenty-three pews and installed the fabric with wonderful new foam padding at their shop, then delivered and reinstalled the seats. It took only a few weeks to complete the whole process, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of their work. The refurbished seats fit the décor of our historic building and are a joy to sit upon. I highly recommend Wehrli Woodworks.
