Russ-toration, LLC
Russ has had a love for woodworking since he was sixteen years old. In high school he was given the opportunity to grow his passion in the field of furniture restoration as well as gain years of experience working at Antique Bazaar in Lisle, Illinois. In 2011, the owners of Antique Bazaar, Ken and Gail, decided it was time for them to try their hand at a new venture - retirement!  

                Their retirement introduced Russ-toration!

Experience is everything! Skills are developed and fine tuned through experience as there is no classroom or text book to teach craftsmanship.  By seeing Russ' work and reading his testimonials you can be assured that Russ is the woodsmith you want to do your work.  

A woodsmith's passion is to restore a quality piece of furniture to its glory.  According to certified appraisers, restoring to original condition or refinishing a piece only adds to the value.  Russ always recommends that if you have any concerns you should contact a certified appraiser for their professional recommendation. 

**A quality piece of furniture and a piece of furniture with sentimental value can be two different things.  Russ understands and respects the difference.  Whatever piece of furniture you choose to restore or repair you can be assured that Russ will treat it as his own!**
