Traditional Hand Finishing in Oxfordshire & Gloucestershire
Our Traditional Hand Finishing Process
With traditional hand finishing, we are able to repair and revive original surfaces or sensitively refinish them. Watermarks, scratches and other surface damage can be removed to restore the original detailing.
All hand finishing work is done by hand, using traditional methods and recipes to make our own unique wax using wax from local hives, and shellac polishes to finish every piece of furniture to the highest standard, we will only remove a surface if it has become so badly damaged or has had a modern varnish applied, the item will then be fully refinished using the traditional methods.
