    Alan is a super woodworker. I brought pieces of a canopy to him, some missing, some damaged, and he put it all together into a beautiful canopy again. I would recommend him for anything that deals with wood.

    I had a table that needed a major makeover so I found Alan on yelp and went with him because of his positive reviews. He was professional and went over in detail what needed to be done plus he sounded very experienced with wood and how to treat it. He was quick, efficient and restored the table into the fine antique piece it deserves to be. He even helped with delivery. It's clear he loves what he does and it shows in his work. Choose Alan for your next restoration job and you won't be disappointed.

    Alan is a master restorer. I purchased vintage Pierre Cardin nightstands site unseen and when they arrived they were in terrible condition. I found Alan on yelp and had them delivered to his shop. He made them new again! He did an amazing job restoring them inside and out. I'm so glad I found him.

    Alan restored two vintage pieces for me, one from the early twentieth century and one from mid century which I thought irreparable. Not only did Alan bring them back to life, he made them structurally more sound. He worked like an engineer in working out how the pieces could be restored and emailed me pictures during the restoration process. He meticulously preserved the patina of the pieces and match the 'surgical' insertions seamlessly with the wood. He treated the pieces with love and respect. He is extremely knowledgeable with materials, his prices and timelines are fair, and a real pleasure to deal with.
    I have been collecting furniture for almost thirty years and now I am thrilled to have a go to guy in LA.

    I first met Alan when I worked for a high end design firm here in Los Angeles and we used him to refinish both vintage and current pieces which always came out beautifully. More recently I have had some antique pieces of my own that needed attention. The first, an antique walnut breakfast table that needed some love. Alan restored it perfectly to my specifications and then refinished it to a rich French wax finish. I couldn't be happier. I also have a dining table that has a place on the top that has heat damage. Alan was kind enough to drop off my breakfast table and take a look at my dining table to give me a quote to refinish it. A few days later he was in the area and called to say he could drop by and try a tinted wax on the table top to see if that would help the damaged area. Alan goes above and beyond when it comes to service and his work is exquisite. I would highly recommend him to both antique shops and to individuals who want the best!

    Alan restored our Heywood Wakefiled dining set, cabinets and book shelves to their original condition. He completely transformed our furniture- we highly recommend his work.

    Alan's the best
    I and my husband had Alan cut down and re-finished our dining table. We did not expect much at the time but when he delivered the table, it was unbelievable. Our table looked the same as before but smaller as we wished. It did not look like it has been altered. Alan's the best antiques and furniture restorator. We appreciated him very much for the job well done. I would recommend him to everyone. I'll use him again very soon.
