About Us

Firstly, we are Stephen and Janet Neilsen and we welcome you to our website. We operate an antique and furniture restoration and repair business and this is our story…

Once upon a time, Janet and I were happily going about our lives. At the time, we were living at Woorim on Bribie Island in South East Queensland, when one day the phone rang, and all that changed…

It was our middle daughter (we have three), with the life changing news “I’m pregnant”! Two days later the phone rang again. It was our eldest daughter, not to be outdone by her younger sibling, with the life changing news “I’m pregnant”!

So, in the space of two days our lives were forever changed (in a good way:-).


As daughters 1 and 2 lived in Toowoomba, Janet decided that she had to be with the girls to guide and advise them through their pregnancies, so we moved back to our birth town of Toowoomba (must be something in the water;-)

Move forward to the present (and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 Grand Children later – our eldest daughter now has four children, our middle daughter has three, and our youngest daughter also has three), we operate a very busy and well equipped furniture restoration and repair business from where we can restore, repair and recycle/upcycle just about anything in timber…coolcoolcool

Our restoration woodshop is located, as you have probably already guessed, in Toowoomba, Queensland (an easy one hour drive west of Brisbane – so send it in Brisbane), and we are open from Monday to Saturday (but closed on Thursdays and Sundays, and on public holidays as well;-).

So, please don’t hesitate to contact us before you give away your grandmother’s table, that old chair, or that solid piece of timber furniture. Chances are we can either restore, repair or recycle/upcycle the timber into something fresh and new.

Thank you, and we hope to see you soon,

Stephen and Janet Neilsen
