In response to the enormous shortage of qualified furniture repair technicians across the United States and Canada, Peter Schlosser, a proven on-site repair consultant, has begun the Furniture Repair School in Hickory, North Carolina.
Teaming up with Chris Mushow, a pro refinisher and owner of Highland Repair and Refinishing, the pair provide novice and apprentice technicians a rare opportunity to enjoy a very small teacher-student ratio (class size is limited to six) in a clean, neat, organized and professional setting which includes a woodworking room, spray booth, wet sanding and rubbing area, and satellite shop area for specialized workshops and individualized attention.
According to Peter Schlosser, "This is not a design-oriented class, nor does it teach outdated or obsolete techniques. This is a soup-to-nuts approach that tackles all the common (and not-so-common) problems that plague furniture retail businesses such as —crushed corners, scratched tops, faux finishing, structural repairs, crushed carvings, missing parts and other common repair problems."
"The five-day course," he continues, "is tailored to provide retailers, with the most “bang for their buck” by teaching essential techniques such as doing burn-ins; operating a cup gun; faux finishing; glazing, and much more. Everything that is taught is documented to hold freshly-trained technician accountable. Moreover, each technician will return with a guide titled, "Managing a Retail Furniture Repair Shop," to help guide repair departments toward a more professional operating level."
On-site consulting services, as well as off-site design and technical help, are also offered.
