Welcome

I love games. All sorts of games and puzzles, but especially board games of the 1920's through 40's. I primarily collect Mah Jong, but I also have chess, backgammon, and other games in my gallery. In Restoration I describe some of my projects and share what I have learned about construction, adhesives, materials, and techniques.

It's hard to keep from adding to my Mah Jong collection. There are so many beautiful, unique sets. In the Mah Jong Gallery I have photos of some of my collection. If you happen to be obsessed with Mah Jong, or looking for restoration supplies, check out Links for some great sites.
