It all began 43 years ago with a five year apprenticeship using traditional french polishing skills on high quality furniture.  Later I gained experience using modern lacquers and finishes in a high production environment- spray polishing tables, chairs and bedroom furniture. An opportunity arose to work for a small company restoring antique furniture involving traditional french polishing, restoration, repairs, veneering and colour matching. This is when my passion for restoring antiques began.

I believe that the furniture we have in our homes should be able to be used and enjoyed, as well as having an attractive appearance. I am able to offer a traditional french polish finish or a high quality durable hand polished finish which can be used when french polish will not be durable enough.

I enjoy working with all kinds of furniture, from the smallest item to the most valuable antique. My client’s satisfaction with the finished product is paramount to me. I am happy to discuss your requirements and offer free advice and estimates on the most suitable repair and finish.
