About Jonathan Elliott

The Finishing Touch furniture refinishing and repair Grants Pass Medford Oregon - Picture of Jonathan Elliott, The Finishing Touch, Grants Pass, OregonIn 1997, Jonathan retired from a long career as a yacht captain in Florida and Southern California, relocating to the Rogue Valley where he began restoring furniture with the same uncompromising standards required aboard the high-end yachts placed in his care. His keen eye for exacting detail and old-school ethics based on the Golden Rule have earned him an envied reputation among his peers. There’s never a boring project because each restoration commission brings unique challenges and rewards. There are generally two aspects to each project. The first involves  physically stabilizing the piece and the second is cosmetic in nature, requiring that the repair(s) are made as invisible as possible. It’s all detail work, requiring a high degree of concentration, mindfulness, and attention to detail. There are no shortcuts to quality work. The highest compliment possible is the look of utter disbelief and joy upon delivery of a completed commission. When a client comments, “That can’t be the same piece,” it gets no better than that!
