Where full restoration is required our preferred method of finishing is to strip items individually by hand to protect natural wood fibres, joints and veneers.

Stain by hand using light-fast stains, to achieve the slightest changes of colour to enhance the natural beauty of the timber and to blend with other furniture items.

Finish and wax by hand using Heat-resisting French polish to achieve depth and variety of finish to customer’s individual requirements.

This technique works equally well on both period and modern furniture. By combining the use of old and new materials and using traditional methods, we are able to produce versatile, high quality colours and finishes whilst giving heat and light resistance.
