Hudson Woodworking and Restoration

Furniture refinishing & repair, restoration, custom furniture & gifts. Our workshop is in Martinsburg, WV & office in Leesburg, VA. Hours by appointment.

We do everything from restoring antiques and family heirlooms to building custom furniture, cabinets and built-ins. We can repair damaged veneer, or replace the entire top if it is beyond repair. The finish we use provides a very durable, hand rubbed, smooth finish and is specifically designed for interior wood surfaces exposed to moisture, heat and household chemicals. It also has a special UV additive which protects both stains and pigmented coatings underneath. If you have any questions about touch ups or any projects you would like to do your self, please feel free to post any questions.

Hopefully everyone is having a great start to December. Here are some pictures from a recent job we did that included 4 Windsor dining chairs, another Windsor chair with rushing, and an antique plant stand that was in about 8 pieces when we got it. The chairs were in worse shape than at first glance and needed to be completely taken apart and re-glued. That is no little job with all the delicate spindles! There are pictures of before, during and after. One of the pics shows the plant stand finished next to its twin which wasn't in quite as bad shape as it was. #hudsonwoodworking #furniturerestoration #antiquerestoration #woodworking @ Hudson Woodworking and Restoration

A new and improved Marine Corps flag. Made with sapele and curly maple. The first one had curly maple with a red stain.

Wishing a happy Thanksgiving to all. We are thankful for your support over the years and for having the best customers! Many of whom we've had the pleasure of working with multiple times. We are so grateful for our new home and shop. Thank you for your patronage, encouragement, and patience, especially during the past year's adjustments building the new shop.

We got this Eastlake style dresser delivered. Had to rebuild the inside to get the drawers working properly again. Replaced the glass knobs with something closer to what would originally be on the piece. Needed to make some new feet to match. Glued up any loose joints, sanded, stained, and clear coated with a post catalyzed lacquer.

Hudson Woodworking would like to wish the U.S. Marine Corps a happy birthday.

The official birthday of the United States Marine Corps is on 10 November 1775. That was the day when the Second Continental Congress established the Continental Marines with the following decree:
“That two battalions of Marines be raised consisting of one Colonel, two lieutenant-colonels, two majors and other officers, as usual in other regiments; that they consist of an equal number of privates as with other battalions, that particular care be taken that no persons be appointed to offices, or enlisted into said battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve for and during the present war with Great Britain and the Colonies; unless dismissed by Congress; that they be distinguished by the names of the First and Second Battalions of Marines.”
Tun Tavern, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is regarded as the birthplace of the Corps as the location of the first Marines to enlist under Commandant Samuel Nicholas, though it is disputed if a recruiting drive may have occurred earlier at Nicholas's family tavern, the Conestoga Waggon [sic]. When the Revolutionary War ended in 1783, the Continental Navy was disestablished, and with it, the Continental Marines. The Corps was re-established on 11 July 1798, when the "act for establishing and organizing a Marine Corps" was signed by President John Adams.

It was today on September 17th in 1787 that the US Constitution was created.

Since the Constitution came into force in 1789, it has been amended 27 times, including an amendment to repeal a previous one,[3] in order to meet the changing needs of a nation that has profoundly changed since the eighteenth century.[4] In general, the first ten amendments, known collectively as the Bill of Rights, offer specific protections of individual liberty and justice and place restrictions on the powers of government.[5][6] The majority of the seventeen later amendments expand individual civil rights protections. Others address issues related to federal authority or modify government processes and procedures. Amendments to the United States Constitution, unlike ones made to many constitutions worldwide, are appended to the document. All four pages[7] of the original U.S. Constitution are written on parchment.[8]

According to the United States Senate: "The Constitution's first three words—We the People—affirm that the government of the United States exists to serve its citizens. For over two centuries the Constitution has remained in force because its framers wisely separated and balanced governmental powers to safeguard the interests of majority rule and minority rights, of liberty and equality, and of the federal and state governments."[4]

The first permanent constitution of its kind,[a] adopted by the people's representatives for an expansive nation, it is interpreted, supplemented, and implemented by a large body of constitutional law, and has influenced the constitutions of other nations

We refinished three of these chairs, and built three more from scratch to match and make a complete set of six. We made the new ones out of poplar wood and some mahogany veneer. For color we stained them with a red mahogany and then after an hour we stained again with a brown mahogany. This helped add the red to the new ones and then gave them the brown tone. It was not quite enough, so we sealed with a post catalyzed lacquer. After sanding sealer, we shaded it with a perfect brown to get them closer to the table they go to. We then topcoated with a post catalyzed lacquer. This was a very fun project. Can you tell the new ones from the original after they've been finished?

Happy Labor Day friends! Here are some before and after photos of an antique mahogany desk we repaired and refinished along with the barristers we recently posted. Note the pocket flag we made looking at home on the desk. We were able to take pictures of the beds and night stand we refinished years ago as well. The best commendation is a repeat customer!

On this day in 1782, George Washington established The Badge of Military Merit. Which is now known as the Purple Heart. May all who is serving be safe and many thanks from the Hudson Woodworking team.

The original Purple Heart, designated as the Badge of Military Merit, was established by George Washington – then the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army – by order from his Newburgh, New York headquarters on August 7, 1782. The Badge of Military Merit was only awarded to three Revolutionary War soldiers by Gen. George Washington himself. General Washington authorized his subordinate officers to issue Badges of Merit as appropriate. From then on, as its legend grew, so did its appearance. Although never abolished, the award of the badge was not proposed again officially until after World War I.[5][6]

On October 10, 1927, Army Chief of Staff General Charles Pelot Summerall directed that a draft bill be sent to Congress "to revive the Badge of Military Merit". The bill was withdrawn and action on the case ceased January 3, 1928, but the office of the Adjutant General was instructed to file all materials collected for possible future use. A number of private interests sought to have the medal re-instituted in the Army; this included the board of directors of the Fort Ticonderoga Museum in Ticonderoga, New York.

On January 7, 1931, Summerall’s successor, General Douglas MacArthur, confidentially reopened work on a new design, involving the Washington Commission of Fine Arts. Elizabeth Will, an Army heraldic specialist in the Office of the Quartermaster General, was named to redesign the newly revived medal, which became known as the Purple Heart. Using general specifications provided to her, Will created the design sketch for the present medal of the Purple Heart. The new design, which exhibits a bust and profile of George Washington, was issued on the bicentennial of Washington's birth. Will's obituary, in the edition of February 8, 1975 of The Washington Post newspaper, reflects her many contributions to military heraldry.

All new flags in all new sizes. We are working on setting up an online store which is getting close to opening. Until then give us a call or a message if you are interested in one. The EGA was still being glued together when I was taking the pictures. Many other options coming soon. Prices range from $30 - $350. Flags are made of curly maple and sapele with the 3d carvings out of cherry. Only color added is blue which is on curly maple. We can also do 2d carving stars, bullet casings which will be 9mm unless otherwise specified. We also can do 3d carved stars. We also can discuss custom flags. Keep an eye for more example photos of other military branches.

Delivered these guys yesterday to a great customer. The dresser had major veneer problems, we had to make a new top out of solid sapele, and add all new guts to make the drawers work a lot better. The coffee table had a lot of veneer replaced due to so many repairs previously that it would be hard to hide the patchwork. Found some walnut and mahogany veneer with really close crotch grain and colored it to match. Pictured with the coffee table is some other work we have done, the sofa and chairs.
