French Polishing

French polishingFrench polishing is a traditional wood finishing technique which is used on wooden furniture that has worn or faded over time.

French polishing consists of applying many thin coats of shellac dissolved in alcohol using a rubbing pad lubricated with oil.
The process of French polishing is lengthy and repetitive, but the finish is considered to be one of the most beautiful ways to treat antique furniture.

We combine traditional polishing with the latest technology using heat and water resistant polishes for tables and wood surfaces.  We can refinish tables, desks, sideboards, cabinets and chairs with damage, scratches and watermarks and restore them to their original condition.
