I have now retired from restoring

I covered all aspects of furniture restoration using traditional techniques to bring cherished family heirlooms back to life.

I aimed to preserve and retain original material and patina. Keeping all evidence of history of age, only adding new material when absolutely necessary. All materials would of always be in keeping with the age of the piece and totally reversible.

Any conservation techniques undertaken was as a matter of course as being part of the restoration process.

Full discussion was held with the client as to the level of restoration that would be suitable to meet their needs. This was then documented and formulated into a quotation.

With all furniture in our care, ethical considerations as regards to their history and personal value was respected at all times.
