Below is a description of the various services we provide.
We offer traditional forms of polishing for antiques and bespoke furniture projects.
Applying shellac (French polish); oil or wax products, we produce an authentic finish to your required specification. For example, we can stain to a specific colour and finish with a matt, satin or high shine. We may advise a certain finish specification to suit the piece or project especially when the piece is an antique* however, if it is possible** you get what you require.
*Antiques should be restored to their original finish with the least amount of work to uphold the integrity and value of the piece.
**It is not always possible to stain some woods beyond a threshold.
French polishing is an art, not a science this is due to every single piece of wood being unique.
Modern finishes such as pre-catalyst and acid-cat lacquers finishes offer a wide range of uses.
In hard wearing areas or areas requiring fire retardants, for example;
Offices, public domain buildings, bars and higher traffic areas.
Modern oil applications for kitchen worktops where scratch resistance is a requirement.
