Simon is not only passionate about craft but also an individual of great moral character. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Alonso Blanco-Velo

We have a very large old table and 12 chairs that needed a huge amount of work. They’d been abandoned for a long time. Simon did an amazing job! The finish is beautiful. I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again.

Karen Hall

Simon has made our sun bleached antique sewing table look amazing. Very happy.

Helena

Fantastic repair job on the leaded glass pane on our lounge display cabinet. Very happy to recommend Simon and Michael to anyone looking for quality workmanship.

David Holdsworth

Simon replaced a damaged sideboard top with a new piece. The workmanship was excellent and completely matched the existing unit which I was extremely grateful for. It's obvious that he takes great care and pride with his work. Thank you and appreciated.

We've had Simon and his team do two repairs for us now. The first was an old oak dresser of my Mum's that was in a bit of a bad state: they cleaned it up, mended doors, etc and waxed it. It is now standing in our conservatory looking lovely.

The second was much trickier - an old walnut firescreen with broken feet that I seriously thought might be beyond repair. But not so: Simon has done a brilliant job on it, totally re-making the joints where they were damaged. Can barely see the repairs. And he's a nice bloke too! I can highly recommend him

I required the tops of 4 bedroom pieces of furniture and a dining table to be restored & polished. Other companies wanted 4 weeks yet Simon completed the work in 9 days. It would have been a week but he wasn't happy with one of the items and didn't return it until he was. This was the work of a professional who enjoys his work and wouldn't take short cuts to finish the job. His estimate for the work wasn't only competitive with others but nearly the cheapest. I would recommend his business to others

Jenny Lake

Simon repaired a split in the top of a 200 year old Rosewood Teapoy for us and did a beautiful job both repairing and polishing the top.
I wouldn't hesitate in either recommending him or using his services again.

The great thing about Simon is his cheerful enthusiasm coupled with his thorough understanding of antique cabinet work. Having passed him several jobs now all have been completed sympathetically, skilfully and in budget. His skills has given me the knowledge that I can go and buy good antique furniture knowing we will be able to work together to bring these peices back to their former glory without any worry.

Bernard

I recently acquired a 3rd hand table and chairs at least 50 years old and in poor condition. After an initial consultation with Simon it was clear that he had an in depth knowledge of the subject and I commissioned the restoration. The work done was to a high standard and completed in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to use him again.

James Pank

My Afrian sculpture, specially commissioned in Uganda, was badly damaged in transit, one arm severed. After some difficulty finding an expert repairer, I was recommended to Simon. He was pleasant, courteous and spent time discussing how it could be repaired and was very knowledgeable about the African wood used. He has done a wonderful job, virtually impossible to see where the break was - my sculpture is as good as new and taking pride of place in my home. Simon was even courteous enough to deliver it to me.

Clive

I have had a rather nice but badly damaged old chair stored away for many years and decided to see about getting it repaired. I found Simon's details on the internet and arranged to take it to him. He was very enthusiastic about the work needed and so I left it with him. In due course he phoned to say it was ready. The result was amazing. He had actually had to do rather more than we had at first thought, but his craftsmanship won the day and I now have a beautifully restored chair, which is as sturdy as it was when new. Simon is an excellent craftsman - very polite and obviously enjoys his work. Thank you.

Clive Crawshaw

At last someone who not only knows what they are doing but has a clear passion and expertise in their field. Fast and efficient service. Thank you so much for doing such a great job fixing my Victorian chair. Happy to recommend Simon to friends/colleagues and will use his company again.

Simon has just renovated an old oak family chair for me (approx 100-120 years old), which was in danger of collapsing into sticks of firewood!! I haven't included a photo as he made such a good job of its restoration, that you can tell the work has been done. He let in some slivers of oak to fill the splits in the wood, and stabilised the joints, before waxing it to bring back the patina. We now have it back home where it is daily use, and am confident it will be handed down through the generations! I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon as a craftsman. Thanks so much for your help.

Julia Greenwood

We had been looking to have these 4 chairs restored for some time. Simon discussed what could be done and we went with his advice. We were extremely pleased with the work and would recommend Simon for his knowledge, workmanship and enthusiasm.
