Wooden Artifact Laboratory

Wooden artifacts as varied as a high-styled Chippendale secretary or a 55-foot-tall totem pole treated in situ in Alaska reflect the range of objects conserved here. Furniture from the homes of numerous prominent Americans, including Presidents Lincoln, Garfield, Roosevelt, and Truman, are among the objects treated. Treatments often include cleaning, finish and structural stabilization, and re-integration or restoration of artifact appearance.
