Stephen Rice is a Master Restorer of 18th and 19th Century Antique Furniture. With over 30 years of restoration experience, he has created a complementary business. For additional information and history regarding his restoration service, please view his website at www.heritagerestorationcr.com.
Stephen’s new business will create custom made storyboard Coffee Tables and Wall Hangings from rare and unusual woods . Each created piece is not only a functioning piece of furniture, but a beautiful hand-crafted work of art. These one-of-a-kind tables and wall hangings are made of a variety of hand selected wood slabs. Each slab is chosen for it’s unique shape, grain pattern and color.
Because of the uniqueness of each wooden slab, no two tables will be the same. The shape, grain pattern, and color of the hardwood will dictate how the finished piece will look. In addition, some tables will also incorporate old world marquetry, featuring flowers, grasses, insects, fossils and other natural elements that enhance the overall beauty of the wood while telling it’s story hidden in the grain pattern.

When searching for a wood slab, my goal is to find wood of unusual shape, color, and density that may be used to create a work of art that will last a lifetime.
My objective, when creating a table, is to draw out and complement, in a minimalist way, the images hidden within the grains and patterns of the wood, while creating a beautiful work of art.
