We make many pieces of furniture from reclaimed timber which makes each item unique. There are always a selection of items available at our showrooms so please either phone or call in for the current stock. Reclaimed furniture can either be left plain or finished using any of the techniques below. If in doubt, we can advise on the most suitable way to protect your new purchase.

We can also offer our made-to-measure service using reclaimed or new timbers, please ask for details.

We now offer our spray-painting service for customer’s own furniture – we use water-based paints available in Farrow & Ball colours.  Our prices include preparation, priming, top-coats & oil finish to seal.  We recommend a light-distress finish for a lived-in appearance.  Please ask for prices & availability.

Restoration service available from a single broken chair to larger items.  Please ask for prices & availability.

Delivery & collection service available by us in our own van with 2 men.  Please ask for prices & availability as usually not weekends.  We can quote for courier/shipping including Internationally.


Oiling – Natural oils feed the timber and give a matt finish.

Hand-waxing – Blended natural waxes applied and buffed to matt or more gloss finish any wax will nourish the timber – various shades can be used to give an initial colour then reapply clear wax as necessary to maintain the surface

Painting – A primer is applied then one or two coats of Farrow & Ball colour.
The final coat is a sealer to give a wipe-clean finish.

Distressing – A distressed finish is achieved by rubbing back colour layers to reveal as much or as little of the timber as preferred whilst keeping to the original look of the piece.
