For three years in a row we keep getting notices from our material suppliers, that due to the cost of making and shipping finish materials, there has been an increase in cost that is really getting way out of hand. With EPA regulations, taxes, and special shipping fees, we also must increase our refinishing cost. Starting April 30th 2013, we will be increasing our prices by 15%, which is less than the increases we have had to endure over the last three years. We can no longer stay in business, unless we push this cost on to our customers. With todays gas prices, this is not helping our economy at all.
We will continue to try and save our customers money in any way we can and will continue to be competitive in the industry. We strive to give our customers the best prices we possibly can. Please understand, that we do not have a choice if we want to stay in the refinishing business. We will try to find the best materials, but we all know we get what we pay for. So we will not settle on cheap brands, that do not hold up well or meet our top quality standards.
We promise, at Dave's Touch-Ups, Inc., you will not pay more than your fair share.

Water is the cause of most of my work. I get furniture with raised grain and water rings from a glass sitting on the furniture with out a coaster. I have seen the best finishes get ruined by water. Floods, leaky ceilings and spills that don't get cleaned up in time. Most finishes can hold up to water, but only for so long. If it sits on a finish long enough, it will either make a ring or penetrate the finish and start attacking the wood. The best thing you can do is use coasters, and wipe up any water as soon as possible. Some finishes are more prone to damage, because they have to much polish built up on them. This increases the chance of white water rings. I recommend you clean your furniture with a damp cloth followed by a soft dry cloth. Polish is not needed, as the finish is what is supposed to make the wood look good. When you polish furniture, you are polishing the finish, and it just builds up over time. Most dirt and grime is water soluble and will clean off just fine with a damp cloth. If you can not get it off with this method, then you are probably in trouble already, and may need more than a cleaning to remove it. An example would be fingernail polish. This will require stronger solvents and may need refinishing. So just remember that water is woods worst enemy and should be avoided at all cost if you want your furniture to stay looking nice......Dave's Touch-Ups, Inc.

ANTIQUE PINE DOORS THAT WERE SALVAGED FROM THE FAMILY FARM WHICH WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1884. THE FARM WAS DONATED TO THE LOCAL FIRE DEPARTMENT, & WE TOOK THESE DOORS OUT BEFORE THE FIREMEN DESTROYED THEM IN THEIR PRACTICE FIRE DRILLS.
These doors all have original knobs and hinges. They also have original shellac finishes that have crazed over the years.There is a small box of extra hardware that will be included with the first purchase. There are three parlor doors reaching 89-3/4" tall.
The sizes for all doors are written on post it notes attached to the doors labeled 1 through 9.
Two of the doors from the family farmhouse, were entrance doors from the front porch. Original Antique hinges, knobs, face-plates & latches. The doors look like a special Faux quarter sawn oak pattern was applied to the exterior side & the inside is pine. See the picture labeled exterior doors to see what both sides look like. All original finishes are on these doors also.
Both doors are hinged the same & are 32-1/8" wide X 1-3/4" thick. One door is 83-1/8" tall & the other is 83-5/8" tall.
We are asking $85.00 each for the doors. If you buy them all, we will take $50.00 off the 9th door.
This price is final, so please do not request a better deal. Either they will be sold at this price or not at all. Any profits will be divided between the Peterson family members.
