Ian wall repaired a very delicate sewing basket damaged during a removal ( leg broken off and internal compartments dislodged). Repair almost impossible to see and internal compartments restored to be as good as new.
Standard of work is exceptional, work timely and good value; thoroughly recommended.

Taken from Google reviews:-Ian is a true craftsman. I asked him to repair two piano stools for me and both were finished quickly and to an incredibly high standard. One of the stools was extremely tatty when I took it to him, but looked so much better on return that our initial response was that he had given us the wrong stool! He is courteous and takes a real pride in his work. I would definitely recommend him

Ian restored a couple of chairs for me recently that I inherited including a lovely regency arm chair. Despite the woodworm damage Ian restored the chairs beautifully. I would highly recommend Ian’s services and skill.
Ian always provides consistent work, to a very high standard. Having used his services several times over the past few years, we have always received a courteous and speedy response, with clear details of his prices. The work has always been to the highest standard. No doubt we will be using him again,
I have had several items of antique furniture restored by Mr Wall & am delighted with the results.
A true craftsman who is extremely professional & has undertaken some difficult projects with excellent results.
I highly recommend this business for their customer service, quality of service & technical workmanship
We asked Ian to restore a badly scratched oak dining table and when it came back it looked beautiful with a perfect colour match and no sign of where the scratches had been. He also fixed the dining chairs that had become very wobbly and are now back in use. We have since asked him to repair a scratched oak chest of drawers and are equally pleased with that. Ian is very professional in his work – he does what he says he will do, for the price that he quotes, in the time he says it will take. We would happily use his services again and recommend him to anyone wanting a high quality job done
We asked Ian to re-finish a very tired Sixties Scandi coffee table for us – a bit different from his usual line of work on pieces with more age on them – and were delighted with the result, which brought it right back to its original condition. It will give us many years of pleasure, and we have recommended Ian to a number of friends who have furniture in need of a facelift with total confidence.
We have several other pieces of the same vintage which are in a similar condition to the coffee table, or worse, and will be passing them over to Ian so that he can exercise his craft on them too in the next few months. There is no doubt in our minds that the results will be consistent with the first project. Ian is clearly a real craftsman who is capable of a range of restoration work well beyond what we have asked him to undertake, and it is a real pleasure to deal with him
My mid-eighteenth-century mahogany bachelor’s chest had been sadly mis -used and needed expert attention to bring it back to life. Ian Wall’s outstanding professional skills enabled that to happen. He found some lovely veneers to replace the top, and cleaned off decades, if not centuries, of inappropriate polishing and finishing to reveal the true colour of the chest. It now has a lovely sheen, and is much admired daily. I would recommend any one to contact Ian for advice and excellence in furniture restoration.
Happy to recommend.
We had some old nursing chairs in need of repair. Ian assessed, quoted and advised in knowledgeable and clearly explained way.
He then did the job to a v high standard, as per quote; and swiftly, too.
Will use again without hesitation.
Ian refurbished a kitchen table and 6 chairs for us in late 2015. He did a test on one chair so we were happy with the colour and also made arrangements to collect and deliver the items. His communication with customers is excellent, and he was always willing to help. The end result is superb – a 15+ year old dining set looks BRAND NEW and has new warmer and deeper tone. This was a gift when we bought our first house and Ian treated it with the same care and love that we have for it. Cannot recommend his work enough! A great craftsman who clearly loves what he does!
