Before & After



The Brazilian Rosewood panels in this executive office were faded from years of UV exposure. Pictures hung on the wall at various times protected the wood in some places from fading, but left a very uneven appearance.

Our expert wood finishing staff was able to blend the color with a custom matched colored finish, which we call a toner.  The results are stunning in this beautiful Minneapolis office.

Removing a sign is a delicate process that needs to be done with care so that you do not damage the existing veneer. Then the removal of adhesives needs to be done and the filling of holes where needed. Sometimes even after using great care, the panel will need to be refinished to blend the area where light has not faded the panel.

Here is the refinished panel, sign removed, adhesive removed, holes filled, expertly color matched to blend to the surrounding panels. All of this work was done in one evening by our expert wood finisher and touch-up artist Rick Bean.

An electrical outlet was removed from the middle of a beautiful wall panel.

Our touch-up artist and estimator Rick was able to fill the hole in the wall and faux grain the area to blend seamlessly.

The finish on the doors at the Union Depot in St. Paul were in very rough condition from years of neglect and poor maintenance.

When the Union Depot underwent complete restoration our experienced wood finishers were able to completely remove the old failing finish, custom match to a provided sample, and apply a high quality exterior grade varnish.
