Our Employees

Al Carrato is a true master craftsman.  His long life has included a plethora of practical mechanical applications that have culminated in the ability to make almost anything from almost nothing.  Many times we gaze in wonder at the profound results from his labor.  Seventy years young, Al keeps the shop running like a well-oiled machine.  He puts in more than 60 hours a week... if he takes a day off.
Chip Ridenour is the heir-apparent to the master.  With 12 years experience in furniture refinishing, he sometimes surprises even the old man.  Chip does most of the stipping, sanding, and stain matching on the furntiure, as well as the touch-up.
"The Magnificent Magi Hall" keeps the boys in line.  She is an expert in furniture cleaning and restoration.  She decides whether or not it can be saved without refinishing, and gives the furniture the final once-over before delivery.  She also keeps the shop stocked with supplies.
The sultry Donna Poole is the website manager and salesperson for the company.  An avid BAMA fan, she can talk sports with the best of you guys.
Tom Griffen is the master upholsterer. He has over 35 years experience in all kinds of upholstery types... from simple ottomans to complex rolled and pleated Victorian era sofas.  His shop stays very busy, so get in line today!  It is worth the wait.
