New to this site, forum, woodworking, etc. Came here for a community of sound and informed advice and am looking for a little help. Briefly, my girlfriend and I moved into an apartment a couple months ago with this guy who has very nice furniture namely three chairs handcrafted in Norway.. unsure of the wood and finish so I can’t really help there and I realize that doesn’t help much but that’s why I’m here, hoping to learn.
We’ve had a dispute with him and although this forum doesn’t offer legal or personal advice I’d like to know what the actual extent of this damage is (He says damage, I say imperfections or wear and tear) and believes that the damage is worth over $600….. I’m not buying that and I’ve been searching for quotes from nearby furniture restoration companies to help him out but he’s not giving us any slack. Firstly he can’t prove we did it and secondly I don’t quite think he can qualify it as damage. Attached are pictures of the three chairs showing the slight scuffs and scratches, none more than 3/4 of an inch wide and just on the surface from being pushed into the table, hence the wear and tear of five 20+ year olds living in the same house with nice furniture.
Any info is greatly appreciated and would really help with this whole thing. I know it’s a petty personal dispute and I don’t want it to become more than that, I just want to know that I’m not totally crazy thinking it’s not really damaged.
