Tables

  • Oak Refectory table with split top

    This oak refectory table had a top where the panels had detached. The top was removed, the edges planed and joined back together. The underside was coloured and the top reinstated.
  • Extending dining room table – major restoration

    The table had once been  extending but the mechanism removed and the underside of the table extensively reinforced. The top had been refinished using a pigmented emulsion and then polishing over. I would assume this was to produce a dark mahogany effect with minimal effort but it hid the grain and figuring of the timber. […]
  • Dining room table restored

    This was recovered from a garage after lying in disuse for some time. The table was dirty and some of the sections were detached where the glue had failed.  The gaps were consolidated and the table cleaned. The polish was then improved upon before being finally wax polished.
  • Tilt Top Mahogany Dining Table

    This table had been used for many years as a family table and had suffered much damage with missing veneers and a badly marked and worn surface. The veneers were replaced and the table re-polished.
  • Oak table with split top

    This table was part of a collection within a large stately home and had a split in the top. The table was taken apart, the split section re-joined and then refinished.
  • Pembroke Table

    The table was in very poor condition with structural problems and a missing handle.  The photographs show some of the extesnive damage to the legs, rule joint and drawer runners.
  • Card table

    A satinwood card table that required new baize to be fitted.
  • Walnut card table – replacement baize

    This walnut card table required restoration and part of this necessitated the replacement of the old and damaged baize.  I only use high quality baize and this can be obtained in a wide selection of colours.
  • Desk

    This desk had an old finish on it that was very dark, worn and perished. This was stripped off and the wood prepared or refinishing. It was then refinished so that the wood had a more natural and aged look.
  • Oak table top

    This table top had a thick lacquered finish on the top that was badly damaged. It was stripped and then refinished in a hardwax oil to provide a lighter look and a hard wearing finish.
  • Satinwood Card Table

    I was contacted about a card table with some water damage. When it arrived I found it had been badly restored before and was in a terrible condition.  Most of the satinwood veneer had been sanded away with odd repairs having been made.  The rosewood crossbanding had been sanded until it had turned black.  The […]
  • Victorian Mahogany Dining table

    This table was in a restaurant and the owners required it be be refurbished. On stripping off the old surface (what was left of it!) I found each side of the table to be constructed from two panels. Both were different shades of mahogany. As there was a budget the best option was to refinish […]
  • Hall Desk

    I was presented with a piece of furniture that was being used as a hall desk but was in fact a converted dressing table. The surface finish was perished and badly damaged and it was stripped and the refinished with a hardwax oil to a satin finish. It completely rejuvenated the desk and the client […]
