Antique chairs and a seat after restoration and reupholstery


“We asked Martin to restore a dining table which had been in our family for over fifty years. Sadly, it had been languishing in a barn for over five years. The table was looking very sad and had damp damage to it as well being scratched.  We asked him to repair, polish and make an additional leaf for it.    When it arrived last week, we were totally bowled over by what a wonderful job he had done.  It has been restored to its former glory and we cannot wait to start using it properly.”

“Heartwood performed an outstanding restoration of my 1775 long  clock case; you can be assured that your valued antiques will receive the utmost care and attention with this company.

I had been searching the area for a reliable workshop to carry out restoration work on a rare and important astronomical long case clock case. After visiting a number restorers, I visited Heartwood, within a minute of talking to the proprietor Martin Burgoyne  I knew I had finally found the right establishment to undertake this work.”

“Martin at Heartwood Restoration provided a fantastic service that we highly recommend. He restored an antique teak sideboard we purchased and it came up splendidly.

His eye for detail and attention to care made the whole process smooth and simple. Thank you very much for your hard work, our lovely sideboard now looks perfect. We really appreciate it!”

“….I just wanted to write to say how delighted I and the family are with the restoration of the trunk. We believed this trunk was damaged beyond reasonable repair but it now looks as good as the day my parents acquired it over 50 years ago.”

Thank you so much for your overall care and attention to detail.

“Dear Martin,
I would like to thank you for the first-class, swift and efficient service received when you recently restored my client’s dining table.   Despite having delivered a somewhat damaged and polish-starved table to your workshop, you and your excellent team have made an stunning job of restoring it to its former elegance.  The various repairs are impossible to detect, testament to your fastidious attention to detail and fine craftsmanship.  Also, thank you for the time and effort put into building up the patina.  The depth and richness of colour is absolutely perfect.  Your regular updates at each step of the restoration were really helpful and much appreciated.  And finally, I’m hugely grateful to you for completing the job on time and within budget! “
