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.
At Shenandoah Planing Mill until 5pm.
1,354,664+ I do not think a thank you is enough for those who made the ultimate sacrifice protecting this nation. Those who swore an oath to protect our Constitution and paid for with their lives. We at HWW are humbled and will remember the men and women who gave some and will never forget those who gave all. We Thank You.

Delivery of a beautiful antique mahogany table and Victorian East Lake walnut rocker we repaired, refinished and reupholstered. We left with another antique rocker. 😁 A great example of what can be done with a restoration. Don't throw away your family heirlooms, give us a call first!
Oak rolltop desk we refinished which had been painted. It needed to be completely taken apart and re-glued. Getting all the paint out was lots of fun! :) We enjoyed bringing this family heirloom back to its former glory.
Sure is windy out there. Had 2 trees get blown down. Luckily they fell into the yard and not the driveway.
Be safe, going to be windy through tomorrow.
This beautiful antique banjo cabinet came to us from a customer wanting to restore it and turn it into a fortuneteller cabinet, reminiscent of Zoltar from the movie Big. There were a lot of repairs and parts to replace including the glass. It was a long and complicated project, but lots of fun!

The Battle of Iwo Jima (19 February – 26 March 1945) was a major battle in which the United States Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Imperial Japanese Army(IJA) during World War II. The American invasion, designated Operation Detachment, had the goal of capturing the entire island, including the three Japanese-controlled airfields (including the South Field and the Central Field), to provide a staging area for attacks on the Japanese main islands. This five-week battle comprised some of the fiercest and bloodiest fighting of the Pacific War of World War II.
Today is the 74th anniversary of Battle of Iwo Jima. We remember the courage, commitment, and sacrifice of the brave Marines who hit the black sands and raised Old Glory upon Mt Suribachi. Semper Fidelis!

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.
Walked out of the woodshop to this. Yelled to the wife get the good camera. These are from the cell phone
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, in order to meet the changing needs of a nation that has profoundly changed since the eighteenth century. 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. 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 of the original U.S. Constitution are written on parchment.
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."
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!
