Q & A
I'm getting ready to order some tools from Highland, but you don't seem to carry one of the items I want. I've seen it in a number of other catalogs, but not yours. Is there a reason you don't carry it?

To Sand or Not To Sand
Since the early eighties, seems we have become very
aware of our families' personal histories and treasures. Everything
from pictures, linens, dishes, silver and of course, furniture, hold
many memories that are dear to our hearts. This is one of the reasons
(actually the main reason) The Antique Road Show is so popular. How we
go about restoring the finish on family heirlooms will often determine
how much of the evidence of those memories actually gets preserved.
In my furniture restoration firm, I always make sure to ask my clients
about any personal histories and stories they have about the pieces
they have entrusted to me for restoration. This helps me determine what
course of action may be required to achieve their desired result.
RECENT COMPUTER WOES
During the latter part of 2007, some of you may have noticed a delay in the usual prompt delivery service for which Highland Woodworking has long been known. This was caused by an unfortunate and lengthy computer outage which made it necessary for us to fill orders manually until a replacement system became operational in early December.
I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused, and offer my gratitude for your patience and understanding. We are once again shipping most orders the same day we receive them, as well as providing tracking numbers to customers via email upon shipment of online orders. We look forward to serving you efficiently and often during the coming year. Best wishes to you for a great 2008!
