Some of my personal favorites that embody what this site is about include the Manly Man’s Guide which I wrote as a humorous look at men collecting what is often viewed as feminine category of decoration. The before and after videos of a Victorian antique 1890s Merklen Brothers table that I had refinished are another personal fave. The full series of the restoration process is here.
So that it not just me doing the talking, I also created the Victorian Forum so that everyone had a great place to interact with other Victorian antique fans.
