Richard W. Townsend


My 17th Century Jacobean was severely damaged during a move.
Richard and his work were outstanding. The repair was all done in the
materials and style of the original maker. It was undetectable.

Richard has rehabilitated tables, chairs and cabinets for me. His artistry is that of a surgeon.

I was more than a little upset when my cleaning lady used a favorited old
chair of mine as a ladder. And really upset when she broke the leg. Rich
removed the broken leg. Drilled into it. Inserted a new piece of wood.
Cleaned out the old joint. And inserted the newly repaired leg. It is, as
he said, the strongest part of the chair. I love his work.
