"Dennis Clancy Restoring recently refinished an antique Eastlake Victorian cradle for me and did a gorgeous job! Thank you, Dennis!!! I was loaning the cradle to my brother and his wife for their newborn and wanted it to be next to perfect. I entrusted that important task to Dennis and he exceeded my expectations. The piece is solid maple with side panels and accents that needed a faux burl finish which is not easy, but Dennis made it look like real burl. In fact, my brother who is no stranger to fine antiques, thought it was real burl until I informed him it was faux! Incredible work, Dennis!!! Dennis, also, showed his resourcefulness in crafting a handmade device that matched the finish to prevent the cradle from rocking as there was no locking mechanism. As always, he strengthened the piece without showing any evidence of having done so.
Dennis has a unique talent and has been very successful in combining furniture refinishing with his art background and extensive knowledge of paints and painting. In other words, a true craftsmen and artist all rolled into one! He is very good at listening to what you want, advising you with his expertise, and compromising on a solution. Dennis takes great care to find a balance between reviving your antique to meet today's living standards and maintaining it's character as to not erase it's history.
Dennis Clancy Restoring has refinished or restored several antique pieces for me including: a bookcase, cedar chest, four-post bed, and dining, coffee, and game tables. He has done an excellent job on everything and I highly recommend him."
