Refinishing - Reveneering Explanation

Below are some general criteria about Refinishing and Reveneering. 

If the base wood and the wood veneer on the face of the parts is in good enough condition, we can Refinish them for you.  See example pictured below:


The clear on these parts is in poor condition, but the face veneer is still intact and in good enough condition for us to Refinish them.

If the base wood “substrate” is in good condition, but the wood veneer on the face of the part is having trouble, we can reveneer and refinish your parts for you.  (You could even have us change the veneer from the original straight grained a beautiful Burled Walnut.)  Check out the completed parts further down the page.

If you look closely at this Door Insert Panel, you will see that the the wood veneer on the face of the part has actually come off the part. You can also see raised horizontal splits in the veneer that are where the veneer has cracked, and buckled outward which is a sure indication that the veneer is coming unglued.

Sometimes we get in parts that are broken.  Sometimes we can fix them, sometimes  we can’t. 

Most of the time we CAN !!!!  So give us a call

We were able to successfully repair and the restore this badly broken part.

Typically parts that have gotten wet begin to have trouble and if caught in time normally need only refinishing and if the damage is bad enough, repair, reveneering and then refinishing.   BUT, in all our years we have never seen automobile woodwork rotted away this badly.

This wood was exposed to the elements for so long, that literally half of the dash had rotted away and what was left wasn’t much.

Fortunately our customer had a lot of talent, a friends car to compare with and trial fit parts AND the patience to rebuild ALL the wood in his Bentley Continental Fastback R-Type.  It took him 2 years to recreate and trial fit all the parts!!!  He then sent us the raw wood parts for veneering and refinishing.  The end results were beyond his wildest dreams.

You gotta love this guy’s “anything is possible”, “never say die” spirit !!!   Please keep in mind, whenever you have us restore parts for you, we always recommend that you have us do ALL the parts - ALL at the same time . . . guaranteeing the best possible wood grain pattern and color match. 
Below, you can see how Bentley creates a look and feel with their woodwork that is absolutely Stunning !!
