Rafael was so good to work with - he made sure I was going to be happy with the final product and consulted with me throughout the process. The antique table with 7 leaves we picked up on Craigslist came out beautifully! I would absolutely recommend him and use him again in the future! Thank you for all the hard work Rafael.

About 15 years ago, I found this original teak coffee table off of Craigslist for $30 because it was listed wrong and I’ve now seen it on various sites for $2K+. Needless to say, the last couple of years I’ve been trying to find someone to fix it up and thanks to Mark from @upstairsdownstairsantiques - he gave me Rafael’s info and I truly cannot speak highly enough about him. So wildly talented and beyond kind. I’m extremely picky and the things I have, I love. This post is a shoutout to Rafael and below is his contact info for anyone who needs any work done. Given how long it took me to find him, I wanted to share. The best part is he picked it up and dropped it off to me which makes it an effortless process, especially living in Beacon Hill.

Rafael did amazing work on our dining room table and Morris chairs. I couldn't be more pleased with the finished products or the experience of working with Rafael. The dining room table ended up being quite the effort due to the finish that needed to be removed, including from the detailing in the legs, and his work was impeccable. And I am thrilled that we are able to showcase my great-grandfathers' chairs in our living room. In addition, Rafael is incredibly knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. What a lucky find on the internet!

My antique dining room table needed some serious work!!! I googled and found Raphael and he was extremely responsive. He came and looked at the table, explained what he would do and made arrangements for it to be picked up. I couldn’t be happier with the results! It’s like a brand new table. I highly recommend hiring Raphael. He is very knowledgeable and talented. I am hiring him for additional work as well!!

Rafael was great, easy to work with, very accommodating, helpful, and personable, he actual recreated a missing carved mahogany spindle for an antique table that my parents bought on their honeymoon 70 years ago which was damaged by movers. He also cleaned up the table and did touch ups on the wood frame of my antique couch, which he also helped me get reupholstered, and makes house calls as needed. I would recommend him to anyone who needed these types of services, Thanks Rafael!!!

Rafael is great at what he does! I brought him my parents' antique dresser, which got damaged during a move, and after he was done with it, all of the nicks and scratches were completely gone. He did a truly amazing job with the finish. Now it seems like the dresser looks better than it did fifteen years ago.

“I wanted to restore my great grandmother’s dining set which consisted of five dining chairs and a large dining table. The chairs were in need of structural repair as well as reupholstering and the dining table was in desperate need of cleaning, refinishing and polishing. I looked up “antique furniture repair” online and found that Rafael was only four miles from my home in Everett. I went to his website and contacted him by email. Rafael responded very quickly and offered to come to my home so that he could give an accurate estimate for the work that needed to be done. Rafael was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. He told me upfront what needed to be done and how much it would cost. I was very impressed with his estimate and very excited to finally restore my dining set! Rafael was in contact with me via text or email the entire time. I was always aware and informed of the progress. He did an amazing job refinishing my table as well as stabilizing and restoring the chairs. I was as well extremely impressed with Rafael’s friend, Semir, who did the reupholstering of the five chairs. They came out beautifully! I have many antique furnishings that are in need of restoration and I will be bringing my business back to Rafael and Semir. Thank you!” – Sarah
