Custom Wood Turning and Carving

An age-old craft, woodturning and wood carving play a huge role in the restoration and conservation of antique and heritage woodwork. At Nikolaus Teply Restorations, we are committed to using both woodturning and carving as a means of helping clients restore their beloved antique furniture. Be it reproducing components of a charming piece of antique furniture or crafting an entirely custom work, restoration is what we do, and woodturning is a large part of it.

What is Woodturning?

Woodturning is a specialised woodworking technique that has been practised for centuries. The process revolves around mounting a piece of wood on a rotating spindle and then skillfully using cutting tools to carve and shape the wood into various functional and decorative items.

Woodturning furniture specifically combines craftsmanship with a keen eye for detail to make unique wooden pieces that showcase the natural beauty of the wooden grain. This wood carving technique enables the creation of a wide range of stunning wooden products, such as furniture legs, spindles, knobs, handles, and more.
