Tudor Woodworks, antique restorers and furniture makers, was established in 2005 and our reputation for workmanship and outstanding quality of work quickly spread. Since then, we have worked on projects from museums, historic churches, leading collectors around the country, dealers and private individuals.
Stuart, being trained in traditional methods of cabinetmaking and finishing, takes much pride in ensuring each piece is worked with traditional 18th and 19th century tools, materials and finishes, guaranteeing each project is completed giving the highest regard to the integrity of the piece.
Services offered include custom furniture making, antique repair, gilding, polishing, lock repairs, leathering, as well as rush and cane seating. We can organize both rug repair and clock repair. We also offer an onsite waxing service, where restorers will visit your home and professionally wax the furniture in your collection.
The importance of having furniture restoration carried out by our knowledgeable, qualified craftsmen cannot be stressed enough, for once a piece has been improperly restored and the surface and patination spoiled by overzealous cleaning, or improper practices, the damage cannot be undone.

“Over the years we have had the pleasure of working with Stuart who is a top-level professional in restoration. He analyzes the furniture before applying traditional techniques and materials to greatly improve the finish and condition. Stuart is a professional at what he does!”
Kaye Miller, Owner
“Stuart Brown has repaired or restored several items for our shop. We have always been more than satisfied with his craftsmanship, his integrity and his knowledge of fine furniture. I am very comfortable recommending Stuart because I know he cares about building lasting relationships with his clients through outstanding workmanship.”
Kevin Hobbs, CEO
“While historic woodwork and restoration is a little out of the mainstream for a large general contractor, we are very pleased that we chose to hire Stuart Brown and Tudor Woodworks to restore the bar of the 21C Museum Hotel. Now that the work is finished and the restaurant is oen for business, it’s easy to forget that nearly all of the woodwork was removed for modern mechanical and electrical work, and needed major repairs due to years of neglect, water damage, and inferior modifications in the past. Throughout the project, Stuart and Erin were a pleasure to work with, made their deadlines, and the final product speaks for itself. The historic woodwork in the Savory Grill shines due to Stuart’s craftsmanship and attention to detail.”
Calvin Hobbs, Senior Project Manager
