Welcome to Bristol Woodworks
Bristol Woodworks owner David King has more than 30 years of experience in the building trades. He spent 10 years with the Smithsonian Institution fabricating a wide variety of exhibit display cases, diaoramas, and interactive wall panels.
He specializes in historic preservation work for older homes and churches. Vestibule doors with raised panels, fluted astragals and beveled glass have also become a specialty, using solid hardwoods such as white oak and mahogany.
David designs and builds custom furniture, with influences from the early American period as well as Arts and Crafts. Fine details such as tapered legs, matching wood grains, and crisp mouldings are all featured in his furniture.
Antique furniture repair and restoration is another service offered by Bristol Woodworks. Loose chair runs, cracked table tops, damaged veneer, chipped carvings and distressed finishes can all be succcessfully addressed and treated. Metal and brass hardware can be cleaned, polished and lacquered.
David can also restore your interioir wood surfaces after fire and smoke damage. Damaged surfaces (such as casing trim) can be removed and taken off-site for cleaning, repair and refinishing - or, in severe cases, can be replaced with newly reproduced pieces to match the original appearance. Color and stain matching are offered as well. Wood rot and insect-damaged wood can be carefully cut out and corrected as well.
