Wood is an organic material that humans have used for centuries. The preservation of wooden objects therefore bridges the past and the present. Our field is not limited exclusively to furniture, but also includes sculptures, instruments, tools and other wooden objects. Each object contains a rich art historical history which often leads us to fall back on traditional craft techniques. However, wood restoration is developing rapidly, with scientific research methods and analysis techniques at its core. This ensures that contemporary materials are also used in our search for the most suitable treatment.
