What Jeff does

Woodie Repair, Restoration, Custom Builds, & More

Highest Quality Finish Work

Jeff’s finish work sets him apart from all others. Multiple coats of marine grade varnish are applied to the wood. This brings out the natural beauty of the wood and gives it UV protection.

Structural Wood Replacement

When a wooden component is damaged beyond repair, Jeff can fabricate, by hand, a replacement with the exact dimensions as the original. Each replacement piece is custom fitted to the particular car it goes on.

Steam Bent Top Bows

Oak or white ash strips of wood are laminated together, then bent to exact specifications. This results in superior strength and rigidity.
