Hundreds of Desks, in dilapidated conditon, were completely refinished, repaired and restored for the various offices. Each desk was finished to a particular color specification for each office. Hardware was restored, runners and rails rebuilt as needed, Dutchman inlays inserted into gouges, missing elements like pullouts replicated, and complete functionality restored bringing each desk to new operating condition.
