Old Science Renovation has transitioned into Golden Age Furniture Restoration. Familiar faces and same quality, trusted work!
Long ago in a previous century Terry Storhaug founded Old Science Renovation in St. Paul, Minnesota. After building his business over ten years years he relocated to 1317 Marshall St. in Northeast Minneapolis across from the historic Grain Belt Brewery. At the same time Don Sellers was starting a restoration business of his own calling it Golden Age Furniture Restoration. After working out of his garage for a couple of years and studying at the National Institute of Wood Finishing; Don met Terry and they decided to join forces at Old Science. By 2016 the block they were on was ripe for development and a choice was made to move to another up and coming Northeast location at 3134 California St. The day to day operations were being turned over to Don and it seemed to be a good time to rebrand the company in it’s new location as Golden Age Furniture Restoration. Always seeking new techniques and innovation the company has settled into their new surroundings continuing to produce quality work through the care and meaning they see in each piece.

About Us

Long ago in a previous century Terry Storhaug founded Old Science Renovation in St. Paul, Minnesota. After building his business over ten years years he relocated to 1317 Marshall St. in Northeast Minneapolis across from the historic Grain Belt Brewery. The year was 1990.

 

At the same time Don Sellers was starting a restoration business of his own calling it Golden Age Furniture Restoration. After working out of his garage for a couple of years and studying at the National Institute of Wood Finishing; Don met Terry and they decided to join forces at Old Science.

 

For the next twenty five years Terry and Don and a skilled crew of artisans worked toward perfecting their craft and building up a loyal customer base as the neighborhood around them was evolving into what is now the Minneapolis Arts District home to Art-A-Whirl and a host of creative ventures. Terry and Don are also musicians and during this time formed an acoustic fusion band known as Trio Tipo.

 

By 2016 the block they were on was ripe for development and a choice was made to move to another up and coming Northeast location at 3134 California St. The day to day operations were being turned over to Don and it seemed to be a good time to rebrand the company in it’s new location as Golden Age Furniture Restoration.

 

Always seeking new techniques and innovation the company has settled into their new surroundings continuing to produce quality work through the care and meaning they see in each piece.

Our craftsmen just wrapped up this refinish job on this amazing mahogany table! Could you believe that this table was actually built by our customers family? They owned a furniture manufacturing company and this was just one of many pieces they produced.

Being a Heirloom, this chair was originally owned by our customers grandma. Like all heirlooms, the chair has had plenty of use through the families generations and could use some care. Luckily thats what we do here at Golden Age! We where happy to make this chair beautiful again for all the future generations!

We're coming down to the wire for holiday gifts, and we know how stressful that can be!

At an impasse as to what to get mom last minute? Does she have a favorite 1960s walnut coffee table, that you set your glass of ice tea directly onto one too many times when you were a kid? Bet you never thought of this:

Buy her (or your sibling, spouse, pal, employee) a newly-available Certificate of Restoration from Golden Age! Nobody needs another tie– this is the type of uniquely memorable gift that would satisfy even the most stubborn gift receiver.

You pick your price! We can help you to understand what level of purchase your restoration will require, or you can simply elect to pick a figure within your budget to keep it open ended as a gift to the more avid furniture collector.

Certificates available for purchase from our NE Minneapolis workshop Monday thru Friday, 9AM to 5PM, and available to order by phone at 612-379-0300.
