Projects

  • Chair to be caned

    This delightful chair had been caned but that was damaged and the client required it to be re-caned. The surface finish was however very poor and it was decided to strip that off and to refinish it. The result looked great and it was then sent off for the caning.
  • Mahogany Batchelor’s Chest

    The top of this chest of drawers was considerably damaged and the client required the veneers to be replaced. It had also been refinished previously with a very dark polish and much of the excellent veneers could not be seen.  The existing surface was removed by hand and polished before a final wax.
  • Walnut Upright Piano

    This piano had a deep indentation on the keyboard cover along with a generally poor surface finish that showed signs of perishing and water damage. It was stripped, the indention repaired and the hand polished to a gloss finish.
  • Set of 8 Oak Dining chairs

    This set of solid oak dining chairs were presented with a perished surface finish that looked grey and tired.  They were stripped and the surface prepared for finishing.  They were then finished with hardwax oil to a satin finish.  This created a rich and vibrant finish that highlighted the figuring and grain in the oak.
  • Writing Box leathers

    New tooled leathers can be cut and fitted into writing boxes.  The internal fittings such as the ink bottles can be replaced.

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 […]
  • Reproduction Regency style chair

    This chair had a detached back leg.  It was reinstated and made good.
  • Painted Wardrobe

    Here the client had a pine wardrobe that had been painted white sometime ago and was looking rather tired. A new look was required that showed off the pine.  The paint, which had various layers, was stripped off. It was then sanded and as much of the residue was removed and then stained and finished […]
  • Toy Train

    My client presented me with a  childhood toy from 70 years ago.  Made by his father in around 1942 it had fallen into disrepair and was very grubby.  It was taken apart and repaired and re-painted.
  • Armchair

    The photograph on the left shows the chair more or less as it was provided.  It had been partly re-upholstered some 10 years ago and then abandoned.  The old covers are shown draped over the upholstery and they were used as a template. The chair had some of the re-upholstered areas improved and then it […]
