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.
Wayne Edwards is our caning expert. He has many years of caning background
and provides us with both French and pressed caning and rush weaving. Wayne's work is excellent, and he is one of the
few masters in his craft left in the Atlanta area.
Dean Rice is an old-timer like Al Carrato. He provides our piano refinishing
and repair services. He has an extensive background and years of experience in the repair and refurbishment of the internal
workings of the piano. He will provide guidance on the value of the piano- prior to and after our work.
We recomend refinishing only when the value of the piano is worth the investment.
