Wood By Design
Restore Revamp Revive
French Polishing, Wood Finishing, and Bespoke Craftsman
Here to make wood look great again...,
An old or new loved piece of furniture, floor, worktop, or a trinket that needs full attention, to be enjoyed again.
Don't cast it to one side, I could change the colour, finish and the size or shape if you like - to help match your new decor or a new home.
It only needs a bit of TLC, some maintenance and a bit more than just a shop bought spray, don't worry - it will be as good as new in no time...
A small selection of items I have had the privilege to revive & restore, and make....
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/or 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…
