Cabinet repairs: We undertake a wide variety of cabinet repairs from the major reconstruction of damaged items to minor repairs which can sometimes be carried out in situ. Repair work can include re-securing loose joints, rebuilding damaged or missing sections, veneer work, marquetry and inlay work. If reconstruction is required old timber is used wherever possible.
Polishing: The greatest of care is taken when polishing items of furniture. We aim to conserve the existing finish and would only consider stripping a finish as a last resort. We can often remove minor scratches and marks and apply wax polish in situ at your home or commercial premises.
