Mohawk Finishing Products Featured Artisans of the Valley in their December 2006 Newsletter

Mohawk Finishing ProductsArtisans of the Valley maintains Mohawk Certified Touch-up Technicians.

Furniture & woodworking requires attention and care to last generations and hold its value, but seems to be one of the most neglected items in homes and buildings. Artisans of the Valley now offers onsite nick and bang repair, scratch removal, cleaning, and waxing services on any woodwork.

Artisans is also the only "Nick and Bang" restoration service that can back up our onsite services with not only the ability to completely restore your modern and antique furniture - but we are an original design and reproduction shop capable of producing museum quality furniture.

Repairs can be completed on antique and modern wood furniture, doors, window frames, moldings, built-in furniture, mantles, or any other damaged woodwork. We have also added stone, granite, marble, and Corrian polishing and dressing to our array of services.

We decided to add this service to our portfolio in 2006 as a sister service to our museum quality antique restoration services.

Mohawk Professional Touchup Kit

Artisans maintains a complete array of Mohawk's professional furniture touch up products, and will visit your home to handle any minor furniture repairs. We will evaluate your piece, determine the proper course of action, and either provide any feasible service onsite or recommend a full restoration of your piece at our shop.

We are now equip to handle finishes ranging from shellac, tung oil, varnish, lacquer, urethanes, and acrylics.

Mohawk Graining PensOur services include restoration of scratches, animal damage (dog chews), dents, edge damage, finish damage, and gouges. We can fill in and blend satin, semi-gloss, and even high gloss finishes.

This includes the use of detailed graining pens and tools to texture patches, allowing a repair to appear almost indiscernible from the original wood.

Mohawk Mark II MarkersDents and gouges are filled using select materials including epoxy fillers, burn-in sticks, and detailed color matching of base materials as well as the finish coats on modern pieces. Artisans also maintains an inventory of our own hand made secrete mixtures and potions for use on antiques.
