Got the tabletop and leaves home and setup and they looks great! Thanks for refinishing it and making them for us. They are really quite nice.
Let us know when the end tables are are ready and when you are ready for the binnacle and ship’s wheel.
Enjoy the weekend!

Thank you so much for the great job on our rocking chair and chess ♟ board. You surpassed our expectations. Please feel free to post pictures, wish we had before photos to highlight the wonderful repairs and refinishing of your work.
Thank you again for the incredible work you did on the chest of drawers. I am beyond pleased and very impressed!
Your skill and artistry is amazing!
I wish I had found you earlier. As soon as we get unpacked, I will be dropping off the butler's stand.
Many thanks for a job well done.

Dear Richard, We are beyond impressed with the work you did on our 200+ year old Chinese Chest. We had purchased the chest from a private owner in Washington State. It obviously had a rough journey to Florida, because it arrived in no less than 6 pieces. We were devastated when we unpacked it. You showed us several prior attempts to repair previous damage to the chest and assured us you would take care to restore it to its former beauty. We were shock when you called in only 3 weeks (your initial time frame was 6 weeks) and saw how you had not only repaired the damage, but had also restored the mahogany to its original luster, added a chain to hold the heavy lid in place when open, and hand crafted the missing internal drawer. The finished product is beautiful, if only we could find the words to describe how impressed we are. It is in better shape now than before it was shipped. We are so very grateful for the work you did. The chest will be in our family for as long As possible.
Sincerely, Dave & McKenzie Owen
Richard- Vicki and I are beyond pleased with the miracle you worked on our little desk. We had thought a few times about just taking it to the dump, as we feared it was beyond hope. But something held us back from giving up on it, and eventually we found you. The restoration job you performed on the piece is nothing short of amazing. Not only did you preserve a significant piece of family history, but turned it into a very beautiful piece of furniture. We can’t thank you enough. We are very grateful for your work, and grateful for you. Vicki and Jim Osborne
Thanks so much for all of your hard work on our live edge desk and table, both of which look really dynamite! Its been a pleasure getting to know you as a person as well. We look forward to working with you again in the future. Best wishes to you for the Holidays and the New Year.

You exceeded my expectations by far. My 100 year old rolltop desk is beautiful, functional like I had hoped for, and a fabulous conversation piece for my house down here. Thank you!
Richard did a fabulous job repairing my family heirloom antique roll top desk. They far exceeded my expectations, during the initial triage, through the repair process and on to the "final reveal" of the desk. The desk is 100 years old but looks brand new! Richard also did extra custom work, surprised me with in-depth knowledge about my desk and spent a generous amount of time explaining everything to me. I highly recommend Twigtree for custom woodworking projects.

I would highly recommend using Richard for furniture refinishing. We have a bedroom set that is 100 years old but my wife hated it because of the dark color. He stripped and refinished the whole set for a reasonable price and it turned out great!! Highly recommend.
The work was exquisite! I cried when I got my chair back because I honestly never thought it would look as beautiful as it does. It is a work of art. So, so thrilled! Thank you, Richard

Richard at TwigTree Woodworking is one of the most skilled craftsmen I have ever met. He restored my grandparents dining room table to and it is more beautiful than ever! This is the second piece of furniture Richard has done for me and I have more to come! Thanks Richard!

I bought this table 16 years ago for $200.00 at the Sandwich Flea Market. I kept saying some day I will get it refinished. Well this year was some day. I found a guy here in Florida who does amazing work. He was so excited about my table that he got me excited. I went home and researched my table to find out it could be as old as the civil war days. Well I picked it up yesterday and it looks AMAZING! I dropped off a mirror yesterday that has been in the family for a while and has been painted 3 times. When I dropped it off my dad said he thinks it was his grandmothers mirror. Now I’m super excited to get that back! I would highly recommend Richard Edgeworth at Twig Tree Woodworking! He does amazing work and is passionate about what he does.
Promptly and professionally done. Mr. Edgeworth is a pleasure to deal with and his work is superb.

Richard restored a dining table for me. He did an excellent job an now it looks brand new. He also finished the work ahead of schedule. I am very happy with the results and services provided.
Richard refinished our dining room table that was passed down to us by my parents. It was about 70 years old. The fruit wood finish had worn down, and the legs had scrapes that needed to be filled in certain locations. Richard did a fantastic job restoring the table and the extra leaves within two weeks of delivery to him. My wife and I love how it now looks!! We will pass it along to our daughter to maintain the legacy of my parents. Thanks again, Richard, for the terrific work!!
My wife recently asked me to re-finish an old wooden file cabinet. It had been painted an ugly green, an my wife thought I could strip the paint and stain it. I knew this would be no easy task, and I suggested, unsuccessfully, that a new oak cabinet would be a better option. I found TwigTree on line, sent Richard photos, and I quickly received a quite reasonable quote from TwigTree. Richard inspected the cabinet, and found it to be "older than dirt" (Richard's quote). Moving parts (including drawer rails and rollers) were wood, not metal. Richard researched the manufacturer (who went out business 70 years ago) and determined this was likely manufactured for the military in WWII (explains the ugly green color). My wife now has a beautiful dark oak file cabinet, and (most amazingly) the drawers slide out with one finger (used to require a mule and a crow bar). I do not hesitate to recommend TwigTree; Richard will surpass your expectations!
I was overjoyed when I saw my cedar chest restored to its original beauty. What an amazing job! Thank you so much, Richard
This gentleman does not just work with wood - he is without a doubt a skilled master craftsman. He is the epitome of the words craftsman and artisan. "One who creates or performs with skill or dexterity especially in the manual arts". He completely redid a dining room table that should have been labeled beyond repair and gave it back to me as not only new looking but better than the original! I am forever in his debt. That old dining table holds many happy memories and because of his love for wood it will be around another generation or two to hold many more. My deepest thanks and gratitude for the care you gave Richard, and the renewed life you gave to my table.

WOW! Richard is a skilled craftsman. We have a large dining room table with two leaves. One got extensively damaged from moisture and mold. While it was beyond perfect restoration, he did an unbelievable job on it and made it look great. We now have a brand new looking leaf with a bit of history to it. Will be taking the rest of the table to him next week for refurb and may possibly have him build a custom cabinet for our bathroom remodel. Thanks Richard for the great work. Would recommend him for any wood working job.
Richard is really a gem. He refinished a dining room table right on time,as promised, and I was stunned at how beautiful it came out. I think it's prettier than when I bought it 35 years ago. It's perfect and Richard was a pleasure to work with.
Richard Edgeworth restored our mother's secretary to a beautiful condition. He went to great lengths to find parts and materials to restore our piece. His workmanship revealed that he develops a personal relationship and caring for the furniture that he restores.
Richard is a true professional. He did exactly what he said he would, when he said he would. But it goes beyond that. We entrusted a Lane cedar chest to him that was sooooo very important to my wife as it has a long history in her family. It means so much to her and will always be in our family since our daughter already has "dibs" on it for after we're gone. This chest was badly deteriorated after many decades of life, including many physical moves. It was a disaster, including a completely broken leg which I had made worse by trying to repair. Words can't describe the chest we got back from Richard. It is like factory new. The attention to detail Richard employs is unreal. Every little thing is perfect. He was even able to repair the broken leg so it looks like it never happened. He even made a key for the lock! The end result of Richard's work is genuinely remarkable. Richard clearly has a love for what he does and he transfers that love to YOUR piece of furniture. Look no further and DO NOT hesitate to employ Richard to bring back your memories!
Richard did a phenomenal job on a very old rocking chair that has been in storage for 40 + years. It looks great and reminds me of when i last saw it together as a child.
Everyone raves about it. You can trust that Richard will do a wonderful job for you
Richard to the Rescue! I have a 1 year old West Highland Terrier, who for some reason, likes to chew on things he's not supposed to.. Like my $1200 coffee table from Italy. Richard did a wonderful job repairing a piece that I thought would never look good again.. I was wrong. Thanks TwigTree!
You're a life-saver Richard! Thanks a ton!
What a great experience!
Richard refinished a midcentury coffee table for me and it turned out beautiful. I highly recommend TwigTree Woodworking!
Richard did beautiful work on the refinishing of an old paneled/glassed door. Fair price, completed earlier than promised - he is a real pleasure to work with. We installed on barn/rolling hardware. Just exactly as we hoped it would look. Thanks Richard! Will certainly bring more work your way in the future...
Thanks so much for the beautiful TV table you custom made for us. It fits perfectly in the corner space for the TV.
Richard created a new drawer face for a piece of abandoned furniture that I found as well as reassembling, repairing, and refinishing a family writing table that had lost a leg and fabricated the missing pull out writing surface. I initially sought him out to do just repair work; however, I saw some of the pieces he had refinished and were ready for delivery to its owner. The four poster bed he refinished was unbelievable. After seeing his work and absolute pride he takes in his work, I decided to have him refinish my table and will have him refinish a Windsor chair he also repaired. He is a gem. I was impressed with the condition of his workshop. It was as neat as a pin and an indicator of the type of work he does. I am exceedingly happy with his work and the pride he takes in his work is clearly evident. I would recommend him without reservation.
Richard refinished my grandmother's bedroom set, a lane chest and several other antique pieces, 13 in all. He treated them with great respect and understood my sentimental attachment to all of them. His work is superb. The furniture is renewed and brought back to its former glory! Thank you, Richard
This was the most outstanding experience. Mix two chairs with strong family sentimental attachment, dried up glue from age, broken chair pieces (because the glue failed and the chairs fell into pieces) that were then chewed by dogs (they sort of looked like bones) and you have the ingredients for two chairs that should have been cast off. Our sentiment prevailed to hold on to them and to search for someone who would accept the challenge. Richard accepted our request and delivered a beautiful product. The chairs are beautiful and have a future life of another 75 or more years. Thank you, Richard.

Richard did an excellent job repairing my dining room chair! His service was quick, outstanding, and definitely exceeded my expectations. I cannot even tell the chair has been repaired, and I am looking for the repair...superior craftsmanship! I will definitely take my business to Richard and recommend him to anyone looking for similar service! Thanks, Richard!
If you need furniture refinished or damage repaired, TwigTree is the place to call! Richard fixed the damage on our beloved dining room table and refinished table, leaves and legs so everything matched perfectly. He's easy to get in touch with...he communicates information...and the work he does is wonderful! We'd absolutely use his services again and will recommend him without reservation.

Richard's work is incredible! He transformed our 7 piece bedroom set from a light oak country style suite we wanted to sell into gorgeous rich dark walnut worth keeping forever.
Richard was very professional and willing to take the vintage refurbishing of my bedroom furniture. He responded immediately when I called to get a quote on the project and kept in touch with me through the process to make sure I was happy with the look. I highly recommend his work and look forward to more projects to send his way.
had a great experience with Richard @TwigTree. He and his assistant refinished a 100+ year old roll top desk that belonged to my late attorney father. We (my sibs) helped my Mom refinish it as a gift to my Dad over 45 years ago and Richard brought it back to life in 2014!! What a family keepsake we can hold on for yet another generation!! BLESSINGS!!
From assessment to quote to completion and delivery, everything was perfection. Richard took a Victorian desk that had been purchased second hand by my family 60 years ago. My father had painted it and slapped varnish on top of the paint. Richard stripped the desk, replaced cracked and missing veneer, stained and lanquered and transformed the piece into an object of antique beauty.

I have my grandmothers cedar chest which was damaged when we moved. It had casters and they wheeled it without taking out the contents and broke the legs. The chest is about 100 years old. We also had a door fall on it. Richard repaired the legs and scratches and to look at it, you couldn't tell it was ever broken. He did an excellent job. Better than I expected due to the damage. I would highly recommend him. He also cares about furniture, you can tell. I already have another project in mind for him to do for me. He is quite a find!!
I came to Richard with an unusual request, to make my wooden speargun look like new, and to protect it from further deterioration. Richard did a great job and it looks brand new. Thank you, Richard
Richard, since you dropped off the table Monday, we've had several visitors awe-smacked by the finish and workmanship. One in particular does alot of fine woodwork and had to examine it from several angles to see the piano finish you accomplished. He was quite impressed, and said it was beyond his abilities. Thought you might appreciate the feedback.
We had a great experience with Richard. He has such a passion for furniture restoration. He went above and beyond what he said he would do, and the final product was wonderful. Highly recommend him.
Richard refinished an antique dining room table for us that was a family heirloom. He did a beautiful job, and went above and beyond. He completed the job very timely, and kept us informed along the way. I would highly recommend him!.
I have known Richard for over 20 years, he has repaired and refinished furniture for me and has also worked on wood projects with my son. You can tell that he loves what he does and tries to bring back whatever he works on to its original state.
