Help & How-To
There are many ways to repair furniture, but at Classic, we only perform "lifetime" repairs. There's no sense in paying to have something fixed if it's just going to break again.
In this section you'll find information and repair techniques for use on wooden furniture. For the most part, the methods used require years of doing in order to achieve the same results. These posts contain actual repairs made by our shop and serve as a reference for how to perform the repair correctly the first time. Enjoy!
