Excellent would not hesitate to recommend this gentleman.

We used David to repair our Hifi Speakers which were very expensive

The cabinets got damaged during a house move. David collected, repaired and delivered back the next day. Excellent workmanship and service, but most of all a very nice gentleman, very helpful and would not hesitate in recommending him.

Superb craftsmanship

David carried out an amazing job lacquering our walnut bed frame and side tables – the results were stunning. He gave us really sound advice about what kind of finish we could expect. Couldn’t be happier.

Fast, neat and tidy sanding job

David came to sand the wooden surfaces in our kitchen, and they looked better than when they were new! Really lovely guy who did a fast, efficient and top notch job. Also left everything clean and tidy afterwards. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone and would definitely use David again.

Highly Recommended

From the initial contact, David delivered exactly what he promised. We asked him to strip, sand and restain the hardwood floor in our hall. The quality of his work was outstanding, he has managed to reveal the original woodgrain in the floor and it looks better than it ever has.

A true craftsman.

A Joy to do business with David and Bev

David’s restoration of a Victorian card table, the survivor of a pair the other having been destroyed as a result of WW2 bombing,has been a delight. When visiting the workshop we were made to feel very welcome. The veneers are now perfect and inspite of having ‘sanding’,cleaning and polishing the table has a lovely feel and patina.

We are delight and highly recommend this firm. J&S

Thanks for saving my table and floor!

David saved our table which had been botched by another company, and even more botched by my own attempt to use Danish oil on it. He gave a beautiful teak table a whole new lease of life. 

He also did a great repair and refinish to our living room floor which had suffered with the dog’s claws. A true professional who does what he says he’s going to do.

Simply Superb

If you want a top quality job , done with a great attitude, then this is the place for you!

David restored the original floorboards in our lounge, which had been covered for probably 50 years. They look fantastic !!!

Highly recommended.

David was wonderful. I had spilt a glass of prossecco on my new dark wood dining table, leaving a white cloud mark. I was devastated. I spoke to David and sent him photos of my dining table and he thought that he could help me. 

He came the same day and sorted out the problem immediately. I am so delighted that I have asked David to do some more work for us. Would have no hesitation in recommending him, he was a pleasure to deal with.

Reliable and meticulous to detail

Another fantastic job by David, floor, kitchen island and work tops, already done our lounge floor, dining room floor, dining table and some garden furniture.

Meticulous to detail, reliable and very clean worker.

Table looks like new

Our table looks like new after it had been restored by David. Excellent job completed quickly.

GillD-12 – 5* Review

Fantastic quality and excellent value

David has polished a brand new oak fireplace for us to match the existing woodwork in our lounge and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. He also restored a mahogany table that used to belong to my wife’s grandma, which she thought was fit for nothing but the tip – what a transformation! He is friendly and good humoured so it was a pleasure to have him working in our home. I would recommend him and his work to any of my friends.

Very satisfied

Very pleased with David’s work. Worked miracles on some really deep scratches on my dressing table top and turned the job around very quickly. Very professional and listened carefully to my requirements. I only wish I’d found him before I had my last lot of refurbishment done. I would certainly use him again.

Amazing Transformation of my floors

We had just decorated our lounge and dining room then realised our Oak floors were dreadful, they were faded and scratched.

We were recommended David via a friend, who was able to fit us in at relatively short notice, which was fantastic as he has done an amazing job and given my floors a new lease of life, so much so he’s coming back later in the year to do my hall and stairs!!

I would highly recommend David to all my friends and family.!

A true craftsman

David has done four different jobs for us.

David is a consummate and highly professional craftsman. I first called him at short notice when I was decorating our hall, stairs and landing and suddenly realised that I hadn’t given a thought to the French-polished bannisters. David graciously rearranged some of his other work and re-polished the banisters in good time before the new carpet went down. He glued a broken rail so well that it is indistinguishable from its unbroken neighbours. And the staircase looks absolutely lovely, as befits its central position in our home.

David then refreshed the frame of a large pine mirror that had become very tired after 23 years of bathroom steam. Some months later he did the same with a smaller mirror from the same room, expertly matching the colour to the larger one (they had been different before).

David then surpassed even his work on the staircase. We had a chest of drawers, 35 years old, made of reclaimed pine and now in our daughter’s room. But fashions change and our now adult daughter confessed that actually pine had never been her thing. I tried to explain to David the effect that she was looking for, ‘white but with the grain showing’. He hesitated to quote, explaining that it was a lot of work and I could buy a new chest for less than what I was trying to achieve. But I didn’t want some new MDF rubbish; I wanted this piece, with its memories, restored for a new lease of life. David’s interpretation exceeded my expectations: the chest has a lovely sheen on top of its new white colour through which the grain shows beautifully.

In fact, our daughter thought it was a new piece of furniture. The trouble is she likes it so much that she wants to take it with her when she leaves home. Fortunately we have a matching one, so that’ll be another job for David before long.

Staircase-handrail polished

Fabulous job!
Trustworthy and a good at his job. Perfect job and pricing was very fair. Thank you for a job well done!

LouiseH-133 – 5* Review

Fabulous job

We feel so fortunate to have found David. We have a Walnut dining table, sideboard and 6 dining chairs which we bought many years ago. We were going to replace the whole lot with new furniture but could not find anything we liked as much, style wise.

We decided to make enquiries regarding restoring it and found David by chance on the Internet. What a find!!

He came promptly and was enthusiastic about the possibilities for our furniture. His quote for the work was very competitive and he was a pleasure to do business with. Once the furniture was stripped of the old varnish he invited us to his workshop to see the result before any other varnish was applied. What a transformation! The grain on the walnut is now clearly visible and it looks like a different suite. Absolutely beautiful.

David is a true craftsman, obviously loves his work and we cannot recommend him highly enough. We’ve now asked him to do more work for us and would now never use anyone else.

Transformed an old fashioned dining table into ultra modern one absolute perfect job. I would recommend his work 100%.

Total reliability

I cannot speak too highly of David’s work for us. He brought a 40 yr old dining table and sideboard back to life restoring them to their original condition. He completed the work exactly to time and we have no hesitation in recommending his craftsmanship to others.

Hardwood Floor Repair

A charity company removal service left deep scratches on our hardwood floor whilst removing a bed. They ran from the bedroom into the hall, so impossible to hide or fix ourselves.

I searched for French Polishers in Macclesfield, was impressed by David’s ratings so gave him a call. He came out to assess the damage within the hour. He explained options very clearly and sympathetically, suggesting the cheapest option of trying to disguise the scratches, rather than a bigger, more expensive sanding and refinishing job.

He was able to fit us in the next day. He treated a small area first to see if we we happy. We were very impressed and even more so with the finished job. David worked so hard to get the best results for us and we are delighted with his work. The scratches are not noticeable at all! He is a true craftsman who takes pride in his work, his prices are very reasonable and he’s a really friendly, reliable guy to deal with.

We can’t thank or recommend him enough. He’s a hero!

Transformation from Cherry Wood to Laura Ashley Ivory and Soft Truffle

I have recently moved to the area to a small apartment and saw David’s Sign by chance.
I had a Cherry Wood round table and four chairs which I have enjoyed for 20 years and asked if he would strip and paint in Laura Ashley style Ivory and soft Truffle.

I was amazed at the transformation and would highly recommend his service.

His work is first class and his prices completely reasonable for the amount of time he spends on the items.
My furniture has been admired by so many people and I hope this provides him with further work in the future.

Ercol bookcase

Last year David did a superb job in restoring an Ercol dining table for us.

This time we asked him to restore an Ercol bookcase/room divider which very dark and had quite a few blemishes. David has done another super job on what must have been quite a fiddly piece of furniture on which to work. The bookcase now matches the rest of our Ercol furniture and looks brand new.

I cannot recommend David highly enough. David and Bev are a pleasure to deal with. Highly efficient, excellent customer service and communication and superb craftsmanship. Excellent.

Fabulous, once again!

This is the second time we have used David and we would never choose anyone else. His work is fantastic and he is a man who obviously loves what he does. He goes the extra mile for his clients and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

SandraB-36 – 5* Review


We have used David on three occasions now, who has demonstrated that traditional skills coupled with devotion and pride in one’s work is not lost.

He transformed our damaged mahogany nest of tables to the most beautiful walnut shade. We are now the proud owners of a modern light parquet floor throughout our dining and living rooms which we didn’t realise was there due to the old dark colouring preventing the real wood colours showing through. Then finally he cleaned and revived our mahogany wall unit which had suffered water damage.

All this craftsmanship came with excellent customer service, professional care and value for money. What a pleasure to do business with such an authentic company. We would unreservedly recommend him.

Mahogany Dining Table Re-polished

A piece of marquetry

I had a piece of marquetry which my Dad had made nearly 80 years ago. David has done a wonderful job of bringing it back to its original beautiful condition. He has carefully renovated the inlaid work and finished it with a satin finish just as we asked. I would highly recommend David for his professional care. Thank you David – my Dad is absolutely delighted with it.

Oak coffee table and nest of oak tables

Changed them from a medium to dark oak to the modern day much lighter finish. We are absolutely delighted with the looks, the finish and the overall service. A really professional service. Nice to know that traditional skills can still be found.

Dining table completely transformed…….

What an excellent service David provides! He is professional, friendly and easy to chat with. He transformed our dining table, managing to bring out the beautiful walnut grain that had been almost hidden underneath the original, very dark polish. A wonderful job!

We are very happy to highly recommend him.

I managed to get super glue over the top of a lovely sideboard and thought it was ruined. Got in touch with David who said he could fix it.

Just got it back and it looks like new couldn’t be more pleased. He is professional in his work and totally reliable, he comes when he says he will. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Renovated Garden Furniture

We had some Bridgeman garden furniture bought a while ago, expensive but looking tired, old and grey.

I can’t believe the total transformation, David has done an amazing job, even taking all the individual slats off each chair seat to enable him to rub them down meticulously. The whole set looks like new and looks fantastic, so much so I’ll now have to buy some new seat cushions as I can’t put the old ones on and spoil it.

Furniture restoring

David made an outstanding job of restoring our Stag dining table and chairs which we were going to replace. They now look like new. He also re-polished the top of a dresser and a coffee table. Again, he restored them to their former glory. He is very professional and obviously takes great pride in his work.

Ercol table

David refinished the top of our Ercol extending plank table. We now have what looks like a brand new table. David’s work is excellent; it’s obvious that he take great pride in his work and is a very good craftsman.

Communication with his wife, Bev, is efficient, easy and friendly. It has been a pleasure to do business with them. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Water Damage to Dining Room Table and Sideboard

We considered the water damage to our dining room table and sideboard to be beyond repair. However, we contacted David and Bev via their website and, as a result, we felt confident that the situation could be rectified.

The work carried out by David was absolutely outstanding and we would have no hesitation in recommending him unreservedly.

Child’s chair

I would never have thought it possible to restore this little chair to better than I remember it when it was new, about 40 years ago. Passed on to grandchildren it could be deemed an heirloom!

I had spilt scented oil on the surface of my polished coffee table, which burnt the varnish off and left a mark in the wood. Dave did a fantastic job in repairing the damage and making my coffee table look good as new. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
