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.
