Artistry is Our Aim

A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.

Louis Nizer. Between You and Me, Beechurst Press, 1948

Chehaw River Woodworks is beginning its 28th year in the preservation business. Over the years the craftsman at Chehaw have given their experience and skilled hands to the service of collectors, museums, houses of worship, historic buildings and even bars. While the company specializes in restoration of furniture, this definition has broad interpretation by the clients who entrust their particular treasures to our care. In the year ahead our aim is artistry. We look forward to the many unique, peculiar, sentimental and practical projects that will be mended, masked, or re-made on a bench in our shop. The hands, brains and hearts of our team are here for furniture (and the people that belong to it.)
