”David has been restoring furniture for my family for much of the last forty years. He brings the same attention to detail to any task, whether it be the restoration of a Chippendale commode, the moulding of some replacement handles for a Jacobean chest, or the repair of an Edwardian wardrobe. I have never been displeased by anything he has done – often quite the opposite! I am not unduly bothered that there are few like him, as he has always been there, but were he not, I would be hard pressed to find a proper replacement”
“We have had numerous pieces of antique furniture restored by Mr. Richards. Some pieces are of great sentimental value and have been restored beautifully. We can’t recommend him highly enough for his skill and knowledge. He is friendly and always willing to give advice on the best restoration techniques”
“David Richards has, over many years, renovated antique furniture for our family, always with care and diligence and we have always been very pleased with the result.”
His work was excellent and on estimate.
His extensive knowledge and sympathetic repair work not only enhanced the piece but also increased my own understanding and appreciation.
David is a genuine craftsman and I would not hesitate to use him again”
“We have had several pieces of antique furniture restored by David over the years, and have always been delighted with his work. He knows what he is doing,his craftsmanship is superb, and his prices are very reasonable. We would recommend him without reservation – indeed, we have already passed on his name to friends”
“Thank you for kindly restoring my oak chest. After you departed I had an opportunity to take a close look noticing how carefully beading has been replaced, wood not seen made secure and the finish given a wonderful gleam. In fact your success is that the chest does not appear to have been restored at all.”
