Oregon State Capitol Governor's cerimonial office after restoration
In 2008 a fire did much damage to the Governor's ceremonial office. The walnut paneled room was originally built in the 1930s by WPA craftsmen, and as a historic site needed to not only be restored, but also conserved as much as possible. In re constructing the paneling we were able to reuse a substantial portion of the original material by stripping and refinishing it to original specifications, and then finishing all the new wood to match the refinished wood.
