Furniture Restoration and Repair

June 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

go to www.hrmm.org

Saturday, June 11, 2022 and June 12, 2022
Max Smith, a professional Piano Tuner, Luthier, Boat Builder, and Woodworking enthusiast will teach a new course covering methods used to conserve structural and cosmetic details concerning furniture. Examples will be provided of common wear and deterioration and mishandled prior repairs. The instructor will guide students in troubleshooting problems with pieces that the students bring in to restore. Due to the varying nature of repairs that may be involved, some students may have pieces that are complete by the end of the class and others may need time to be completed at home with the guidance of the instructor easily accessible.

Following a survey of materials and applications, damage and repair, and cleaning procedures; students will be guided through the process of reviving their individual furniture pieces, the first day will ideally culminate with a top-coat of protective finish to be allowed to dry overnight. The following day will cover polishing the finish and care with a final discussion and recap of topics covered.

All students are expected to bring furniture pieces to be worked on in class. Suggested pieces include small coffee tables, end tables, chairs, antique clock cases, small wood sculptural pieces, etc. due to time and space constraints, pieces larger than these are discouraged and final approval will be given by the instructor once furnished with detailed photos of prospective pieces.
