Early American Workshop

Specializing in the Professional Restoration of Fine Antique Furniture and Clocks Since 1985

Our Passion:

     Since 1985 the Early American Workshop has been providing all aspects of professional  furniture and clock restoration to its customers in the entire Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin area.  From a simple touch-up to the full reconstruction and restoration of your fine antique furniture or clock, the Early American Workshop has the ability and the experience to get the job done. 

    Whether its that glowing aged patina on your Victorian parlor table or the subtle curves on Grandma's old china cabinet, we understand and share your passion for antiques!  The simple fact is that with so much cheaply made furniture being produced overseas these days, new furniture rarely, if ever comes close to the quality, warmth, value or style that yesteryears craftsmen could produce. This is just one of the many reasons we strive to lovingly restore and help preserve the past for the enjoyment of our future generations!

     Should you choose to trust us with the care and restoration of your heirlooms, you can rest assured that we will treat your treasures as one of our own and it will receive the utmost care and personal attention it deserves. 

Please have a look at our Photo Gallery to see some examples of what we can do!
