Further Examples #01








A typical, deep carved, German Desk where the colouring had deteriorated.
Staining and polishing brought it back to life.


Further Examples #02






Two English ladderback chairs.
All the joints were loose and required re-glueing under clamps.
Some new seat rails were needed.


Further Examples #03











An English, Flame Mahogany, bedside cupboard where the veneer patches needed carefull matching to the existing grain.
The whole piece then needed re-Frenchpolishing to bring out this beautiful graining.


Further Examples #04









A Victorian, bedroom chair where the two Barley twist back uprights had snapped.
Restoration was achieved by making splints for each to hold them secure while the hot Scotch glue was setting over a period of 24 hours.


Further Examples #05






This Walnut table, in the Chinese style, had water marks and other surface blemishes. These were eradicated and the whole surface re-French Polished.
