REFINISHING AND FURNISHING REFURBISHING HELPS MINIMIZE YOUR IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT

 

Recycling your existing furniture and millwork and using the latest products and techniques for wood repair, refinishing and furnishing refurbishing helps minimize your impact on the environment and saves money.

Refurbishing, rather than buying new, substantially lowers your energy footprint. There is a tremendous amount of energy required to harvest lumber, process it and build the new furniture; refurbishing existing furniture eliminates the need to expend this energy. Help Save Forests and Assure Minimal Environmental Impact — Using older furniture reduces the need to harvest wood for new furniture. Lower Landfill Impact — Recycling and reusing furniture puts the furniture to use, rather than discarding it and adding it to a landfill. Assure Minimal Environmental Impact — Using environmentally friendly products reduces air pollutants and helps assure a healthier environment for employees and customers.

WHAT IS A WOODWRIGHT?

Greg Wright, Owner

“Wright” is an occupational surname originating in England. For example, a woodwright is a person who works with wood, and is used as a British family name. Wright is also an anglicized version of the Scots Gaelic clan name “MacIntyre” or “Mac an t-Saoir”, meaning “Son of the Wright”, or Son of the Carpenter”.

The word Carpentier, now Carpenter was introduced into England in 1066 and slowly replaced the traditional name and meaning of wright. Wright is the thirteenth most common surname in the United Kingdom. Its use as a occupational title continued until the mid 1800s. Its occupational use was often combined with other words such as wheelwright or playwright.

Greg did an amazing job of sprucing up and reupholstering my 8 dining room chairs. One of the chairs had a broken leg that had splintered in two. It looks like new, and is super sturdy. I'll definitely be using his services again in the future.read more

Greg has done a couple of jobs for me including the repair of six Bernhardt dining room chairs and the refinishing of a solid wood sofa table. The latest was the dismantling of a massive solid wood Bernhardt king size four poster bed that had been screwed and glued together at the factory. The headboard and footboard would not fit up the stairs in my new home. He did a phenomenal job carefully taking it apart and putting it back together so it looks as good as new. He truly takes pride in his work and goes above and beyond to take care of his customers. I highly recommend his services.read more

Greg is a true gentleman. He helped me with a chair project, and then refused payment. I was so nervous and he made everything so easy, and he wouldn't give up until the job was complete. I would recommend him for his kindness and work ethic alone, but his work is fab too! Thank you Greg, you are a great ambassador for wood craftsmen and Indianapolis.read more

Just had a couch repaired after I foolishly sat on the back of it. They answered my call and responded right away by putting me on the schedule immediately! They did a great job repairing the couch and it looks as good as new, and is actually probably stronger that it was to begin with. It was also very fair pricing, especially for an on-site job.read more

Just had Greg back for a third time - this time to work on hiding dozens of holes in my front door, put there by prior residents putting up window shades incorrectly [dozens of times]. After I worked 5 days rebuilding and refinishing my 122 year old door, the holes needed hiding to make the door completely beautiful. Greg put on his magic touches and bingo! It is perfect. Thanks! Greg's work was fantastic. The value for the money spent with him was great. Greg knows how to balance his effort and labor (my costs) with the repair efforts to maximize my benefit. I have had Greg repair antique furniture, very high end custom Pine kitchen cabinets, historic wood trim, and new trim made to look old and historic to match the rest of our house trim. I am using him for additional work. That is the best compliment I can give him.read more
