Just in time for Christmas we finished this beautiful ‘plum pudding’ card table. The original polish was opaque and faded along with a split in the top. Now re-polished it looks stunning with the beauty of the original veneer showing through.
This windsor chiar had been stored in a barn for many years. After being carefully cleaned and colour put back into the tired wood. It was then re-finished with a traditiona oil and finally wax polished. A wonderful transformation!
This farmhouse table had been stored in a barn for many years. It was cleaned and re-finished using traditional oil and finally wax polish. The top still retains the character of its previous use but now glows with colour and shine.
We have just completed the restoration of this mahogany long case clock. The case had missing sections of veneer and the polish was dirty and in poor condition. Also the fretwork in the hood was missing and this had to be replaced. Now fully restored it is ready to brighten up anyone’s home!
Heartwood Restoration has just completed the restoration of this set of 8 chairs. They came into the workshop if a very poor state, with all of the joints previously ‘repaired’ with screws and nails. We have repaired all the broken joints and re-finished the set using traditional french polish, now returned to their former glory!
We have been restoring this lovely pond yacht. It came into the workshop in a poor state of repair; missing it’s mast, sails, rigging and with not stand to display it. After reviving the polish on the decking, we carefully re-painted the hull keeping the original name. Not what we usually do but after research we have fitted a replacement mast, sails and rigging. All that was left was to make a new stand and the results speak for themselves!
We’ve recently finished this plan chest restoration from the estate office on a large estate. The chest was in such a poor state that we had to dismantle it in situe before taking it to the workshop. Having rebuilt the carcass we cleaned the surface and applied a traditional oil finish followed by a good wax polish. Definitely a transformation!!
We have just finished the restoration of this stunning Aspray coromandel box. It came into the workshop in a poor state missing the original interior. After careful research we remade the interior, complete with drawers and compartments lined with silk and velvet. The drawer fronts were verneered with coromandel and small brass handles were made to match the original handles on the sides of the box. A lovely project to work on!
