About Us

Waskiel Furniture Refinishing

Who We Are

In 1956, my father Stan Waskiel, began work as a piano refinisher at the Providence Piano Company. Over the next several years while working with master cabinet makers, piano retailers and furniture restoration companies, he acquired the skills, experience and financing to open his own company Waskiel Furniture Refinishing. From humble beginnings in a two car garage in Olneyville, RI, the company grew to expand to larger and larger mill spaces. Eventually in 1982, he purchased his own building, which included a refinishing shop and retail/wholesale antique and piano store. Soon there would follow a warehouse and purchases of other buildings and businesses, one of which was the original Providence Piano Company. After working with my father on a part-time basis since childhood, I took over the refinishing and restoration portion of the business in 1990. In the years to follow, Waskiel Furniture Refinishing would expand the business into museum and historical restoration, architectural finishing, fabrication and residential and commercial touch-up and repair.
