    Job: Repair furniture broken in a long distance move, including two antique carved wooden chairs, one reproduction Chinese chest, and a Victorian brass stool. All of them now look splendid! Then Tiffin gently preserved an antique glass door bookcase that had been attic abandoned for 55 years with marvelous results. A new base and legs were created which look as though they have always been there. Throughout I have experienced top-of-the-line service from initial contact, all discussions, to final delivery. Mike, the owner is a pro of the highest order. We are entrusting our family heirlooms with Tiffin Millwork. Thanks for a very nice welcome to Milwaukee.

    I had Tiffin redo two heirloom steerage trunks that had been neglected for years. They 'remade' them into beautiful pieces of furniture that will be enjoyed for years to come. One came out so well we decided it could be in a Ralph Lauren picture!

    I had an antique chair leg repaired. I wasn't in a hurry to get it back and he got it done in two weeks. It looks really nice, the finish is matched perfectly and it's sturdy. I'm very pleased with the work.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
We price every job individually due to the fact that it is very rare to have the same job come up twice aside of our large commercial runs of furniture. We can provide alternative methods of approaching a project which will enable our customer to keep within budget.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
School 1969
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have a very diversified compilation of minds with many years of experience. We enjoy challenges not just for creating unique one off pieces but working ways to manage large volumes of furniture at competitive prices.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Send in photos of the pieces you are interested in being worked on, this will help us prepare an estimate.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Woodworking and the trades in general are compiled from human beings from all walks of life. It is imperative for a customer to understand that the correct advice given, is only relative to what is budgeted for a particular project. Thus when comparing prices between tradesmen, artisans or furniture makers, what must be taken in to account that all entities are taking a different approach for the finished product. This ultimately decides the price for completing a project. The customer can be sold an idea at a price or the customer can also decide on a budget. This will provide a guide line for the craftsman to design a process in order to achieve a price.
