Congratulations, you’ve navigated to the website for Edelweiss Restorations in Redwood City, California.

My name is Ottmar Alois Umhofer (pronounced: OOM – ho – fur) —you can call me “Al”—and I am the craftsman behind Edelweiss Restorations. I am also a native of Germany with more than 45 years experience conserving furniture in my native and adopted countries. My passion is restoring priceless antiques and treasured family heirlooms, ensuring they are structurally sound. Even if you think your piece cannot be restored, talk to me first. Chances are, I will have a solution!

Thank you for visiting my site. I hope you enjoy the before and after photos depicting some of my work. When you are ready to have your fine furniture pieces restored, click the Contact link above to reach me directly.

Sorry to tell you I lost my lease and did not find an affordable new Workshop
