The staff of Meeting House Furniture Restoration possesses a broad range of skills, education, and expertise in conservation, wood working, and finishing. The myriad of talents and experience is reflected in the diverse range of projects the shop undertakes. These abilities include the conservation of wooden artifacts and fine art found in the collections of many local and regional museums, as well as extensive restoration of period furniture and decorative art at the Vermont State House. The everyday family heirlooms they work on, however, are of greatest significance, "if the piece is important to the client, it is important to us."
