About Us

DSC_0793Wehrli Wood Refinishing, as the business was originally named, began 31 years ago in Naperville, Illinois as the passion and dream of Tom and Chris Wehrli. They recognized the community’s need for a local source of furniture refinishing and repair services. Tom’s ability to perform that work, along with the couple’s attention to customer service and satisfaction, allowed them to build a very successful business. Tom has diligently practiced his craft for over three decades, making many friends and memories along the way.

DSC_0762In 2014, Dan Jones and Paul Ward purchased the business from Tom and Chris. Dan and Paul recognized the value and importance of the business to the community. And, the long-standing reputation of the business for providing quality work and customer service made it important to keep the Wehrli name. With a view toward expanding the business beyond wood refinishing, the decision was made to change the business name to Wehrli Woodworks. The new name conveys the direction of the business while continuing to build on the strong foundation created by Tom and Chris. Both Dan and Paul have many years of experience in running and managing businesses, including the delivery of woodworking and finishing services.
