French Polishing & Wood Finishing
Here to Make Wood Look Great Again...,
An old or loved piece of furniture that needs full attention to be enjoyed again...
Give it a new lease of life before you cast it to one side, I could change the colour or finish
It only needs a bit of TLC and some maintenance and it will be good as new in no time..
A small selection of items I have had the privilege to work on...
Hello and thank you for showing an interest in Wood By Design.
I offer my services to both domestic and commercial clients, working to requirements and budgets. Regular areas covered include London, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Hertfordshire but I am always happy to travel further should it be necessary.
Using both traditional and modern finishing skills combined with products from long established companies in England and Wales, I can bring furniture, worktops, wooden interiors, staircases and one-off pieces back to life, to be enjoyed again.
I love my job – I knew what I wanted to do as a boy and worked hard to realise that dream. Having attended the Swiss School of Carving and studied at the London College of Furniture, I have over 40 years of experience in this field. I feel privileged to be able to be a French Polisher, find it very satisfying and extremely rewarding.
I am always happy to quote and give honest advice, without obligation. I can do as little or as much as you wish - from removing ring marks, stains and dents to a full restoration or transformation and redesign - you decide and let me know…
