We can undertake all French Polishing, Cabinet Repairs and indeed any aspect of furniture restoration.

When you entrust a piece of furniture to a conservator/restorer, whether it is 300 or 30 years old, you need to know it will be treated sympathetically, competently and carefully. Unless you have a personal recommendation it is difficult to be sure whether you are handing it over to a skilled craftsman or to an untrained bodger.

Whilst I cannot comment on the majority of the people who call themselves restorers - or even conservators - I can present my own credentials.

I have been practicing furniture restoration since 1991. I studied for and gained a Diploma of Higher Education in Furniture Restoration (Distinction) then a B.A. Honours Degree in Furniture Conservation (1st class), both awarded by Manchester University. I then worked at a prominent Antique Furniture Restoration company in the centre of Derby for a year before setting up my own Conservation/Restoration business in 1996.

It is important when planning a scheme of restoration or conservation that a minimum of physical interference is undertaken, so as to preserve the patina and visual history of a piece. In this way it's integrity and it's intrinsic value will be maintained. It makes no difference whether I am commissioned to conserve/restore a 17th century oak dropleaf table or a 1980s display cabinet, I apply the same care and attention to each and every piece entrusted to me, and will work to attain the very best results possible in every case.

I am happy to assess and discuss any piece, and advise on all possible plans of restoration that could be taken. I make no charge for a verbal assessment and estimate. I undertake commissions for collectors, private individuals and institutions, as well as trade and commercials contracts.

My workshop is situated in the Derbyshire/Cheshire border region, in the regions of Macclesfield, Buxton, Stockport and Wilmslow. I serve the Derbyshire, Cheshire and Stockport areas.
