One day my son, Bill, called me and asked, “Dad, I need your help.” I came over and I got hooked. I have a real passion for this work and I find it exciting. I open boxes that come from around the world, and I never know what is waiting inside. It could be a 200 to 300 year old frame that needs fixing. My specialty is frames, and the bigger the better. I enjoy recreating missing or broken pieces and fixing gold leafing.
