Martinez, California (EastBayDaily) — Bay Area furniture repair specialist, Darrell Stimson, affectionately known as the Wood Wizard of the Bay Area, is announcing a trip to Kenya from August 8 to September 6. He will be traveling with Jack Fleihmann on an “Africa Live Now” mission trip.
“Wood Wizard is the Bay Area’s leading on-site wood restoration specialist,” said Darrell Stimson of The Wood Wizard. “With more than 35 years of experience, the Wood Wizard is truly a master of furniture restoration and cabinet resurfacing, both old and new.”
The Wood Wizard’s trip to Kenya is two-fold. First, and most importantly, he will be traveling to support a village project for widows and fatherless children. Secondly, he is looking to improve his business for his loyal customers by learning about local furniture-making techniques. Darrell will observe and study everything from how to cut down the tree to putting on the finishing coat. He is going to learn about the different types of wood used in Kenya, and their hand making and building processes. Darrell is also excited to learn about the different kinds of finishes that Kenyan furniture makers utilize.
During the trip to Africa the Wood Wizard’s assistant “Genie” Kate will be covering the phones and email.
