Joe Bailey, the owner of this family run company, was born into a.. furniture making family in Vermont that had the old world tendencies and mindset. His uncle, Francis 'Bud' Carpenter is a world renowned clock maker/woodworker who studied in The Black Forest of Germany. He keeps the family history book dating from 1612 when their ancestor, as an Irish indentured servant, became the town carpenter of London, hence the family name Carpenter.
As a child, Joe quickly realized through his training that it was challenging for him to cut straight lines, but he was able to hide any mistakes quite well by working with artwork and finishes. He holds a strong passion for the look and feel of wood and the natural artwork that God provides in graining, colors and texture. After years of studying and becoming a starving artist in the 60's, he mixed his woodworking heritage with his art training and endeavored to started crafting exceptional woodwork.
With a slogan and mindset of 'make wood look good,' Joe built his business from the ground up and has been following his dream ever since!

I know it sounds too hard to believe but it's the absolutely true! I bought my first real piece of furniture from JoJo, and about 6 months later gave him a rocker to restore as well. I think my words... were, "save it if you can". He laughed, smiled and in no time not only restored my piece but I swear it looked probably better then when it was new in the 1930's! I couldn't believe it! It was and is so amazing. I love his work, and have actually made a really good friend too which is the best part! He inspires me too keep working on my own pieces as well which is priceless. I highly recommend JoJo to all my friends and strangers, and I never do that unless the person is that good. Well, he is THAT GOOD, and worth every penny and a lot more!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
After getting back my childhood high-chair, I realized that it really needed to be refinished. I called and talked to many people to get quotes and ask questions and Joe had reasonable prices and... listened to what I wanted. After getting the work back I was AMAZED at how well it looked. He even put restaurant grade clear coat on to protect it from the abuse a high-chair receives. If you want to give an old piece some love, don't hesitate to take it to Joe.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

Joe restored a corner china cabinet for me that had belonged to my mother. His care and attention to detail were above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend him for any wood restoration/refinishing project no matter how challenging. It was a pleasure to work with someone who truly loves his craft.
Joe repaired & refinished an old desk and its a work of art. It was in very rough shape and my request was to have an old desk that looked loved and cared for (if I'd wanted new - I would have bought that). Joe did an excellent job. I was very pleased.
Joe refinished a vintage pair of 1974 walnut speakers for me and they look brand new again. Now he is working on another project for me. I highly recommend. A+ work.
Joe did a tremendous job in repairing my antique dressers and desk & I will definitely use him again! In addition his timeframe and price were both reasonable.Ē
mr bailey has worked on several pieces for my family and is a true craftsman . he has more of our antiques in his shop at present , and will always have our support and business. i recomend his work and service highly to all who are in need of quality fine woodwork and furniture repairs.
We've used Joe for years to make repairs. He's extremely detailed orientated and takes the time to ensure his repairs are done correctly the first time. In the off-chance that a repair needs to be refined he happily does it! This happened to us most recently when a chair of ours needed a little more reinforcement. And he didnít charge me for the repair. He's great to work with, he knows what he's doing, & he's reasonably priced.
I called Joe about my broken cherry wood kitchen chair. The leg and support arm was completely broken. In addition it had plenty of scratches. Joe told me "no worries", fixed it within three days. Superb craftsmanship paying special attention to detail.
I have an antique card table that is an old family piece. Joe completely transformed it back to it's original state - better, actually! It is really the showstopper it should be now, thanks to Joe making Wood Look Good!
Joe was a tremendous help to me when my bulldog puppy chewed through our favorite piece of furniture (our coffee table)! We have found it to be a unique piece and did not know where we could get a replacement if it was not able to be repaired. I was most concerned about maintaining the dark finish that matched all our other furniture.After seeing the damage done on email, Joe assured me that the finish could be matched and quoted me a fair price. It took about a week for me to get our table back, but now it looks as good as new! Joe was also very flexible when it came time for us to pick up our table. Overall, we're very happy Joe's quality of work! Our coffee table is back and looking better than ever. I'll definately keep him in mind for future wooden furniture repairs and recommend him to our friends who might need his service! Thanks Joe!
Thanks to Joe! We now have a beautiful rocking chair to care for our new baby. My father pasted away while I was 5 months pregnant and he left me my grandmother's rocking chair in which she used to nurse him. I was very hesitant to take it to someone to be redone b/c it was so precious. It needed a broken leg repaired though so I had to get it fixed if I planned to use. Joe not only repaired the leg, but tightened all the joints and surprised me by cleaning the chair and applying a new finish...it's gorgeous and very sound. It can't wait to rock my new son...such a special gift!
We purchased a claw foot oak table at auction. It was dirty, dull and too short. Joe was able to raise the table a couple of inches and make the finish look incredible. It still has the "antique" look, but now looks like a well cared for antique. We would highly recommend Joe's work.
This person is an artist and makes wood look better than new. He is reliable, reasonable and a pleasure to do business with. I could not recommend him more.
I have known Joe and his work for nearly 20 years. There is no one else I would consider for any restoration work. I have trusted him with my most important valued items.
Wow! This guy really took his time and worked on my piano like it belonged to Elton John! I am so very glad that I decided on this company and I will never ever ever use anyone else for my wood work. He also did two nightstands for us. They look so good I almost forgot that they were restored! Use this guy! Period!
Mr. Bailey did restoration work on the headboard of my approxinmately 100 year old bed. It was squeaky due to the glue holding the many pieces of the headboard together drying out. He was very accommodating in that he got the bed back to me within a week before my guests arrived. The bed looks wonderful and the squeak is gone! I would recommend him without hesitation. He returned my bed as promised and did excellent, quality work. Joanelle
