When it comes to furniture, restoration and repair of broken or chipped stocks is common place. From exotic woods, Gutta Percha, Bakelite, ivory or pearl, our craftsmen can correct nearly any problem giving your piece the look and feel it richly deserves.
Like so many other traditional crafts, rust bluing has become a lost art faded from gun building, replaced by faster, easier finishes that cannot compare. Even though the art is over two-hundred years old, it remains to this day the finest finish available in firearms.
Our rust bluing processes are based upon our own formulas and tailored for the look of each firearm. In the sub-tropics of west Florida where the conditions are ideal, the entire bluing process can last three weeks or longer to properly complete.
While there are so many options available for re-finishing, these cannot be compared to fine restoration services. Not to say this is best for all firearms, it’s not, only the finest.
We provide the finest restoration or preservation for a treasured heirloom, period.
