About Us and our work doing antique restoration


Bill Oakley - Owner

Oakley Restoration & Finishing, llc has evolved over 27 years from Bill Oakley’s first antique furniture restoration business, Phoenix Restoration, which was based in Brooklyn, New York.

After relocating in 1994 to New Milford in Litchfield County Connecticut, Bill doubled the company’s size and expanded to a two man shop.  Over the years he continued to grow the business, and Oakley now employs 3 full-time Restoration Artisans in addition to himself.


Nathan Meyer

Nathan just celebrated his 20th Anniversary with Oakley Restoration and over those years he has grown tremendously as a craftsman and artisan.  He continuously displays his unique and exacting skills doing furniture repairs, refinishing and custom cabinet making. If it can be made, Nathan will do it!


Scott Oshinski

Scott has been at this game for as long as Bill Oakley and has developed such excellent skills at not only specialized repairs on antiques but he can fool any expert with his old looking finishes! Scott has the patience to take on those difficult projects involving surgical-like skills.
