French Polishing and Wood Finishes

We offer traditional and quality services in French Polishing and Wood Finishes.

Wood needs a finish on it to bring out its natural beauty. The traditional way of polishing wood is French Polishing or Sealing and Waxing.  This is usually applied to antique furniture and handrails and gives the wood a beautiful feel to the touch.

Finishing gives the wood an enhanced appearance, protection from dirt and moisture making it easier to clean and maintain.

French polishing is a traditional finish that is a process of applying many thin coats of shellac.  The result gives the grain in the wood a depth and beauty.

Modern furniture requires a more durable finish using hard wearing lacquers with different degrees of sheen e.g. satin or matt making them more serviceable for everyday use.

We undertake the re-polishing of antique and modern furniture and wooden fittings as illustrated in the photographs.
