Many thanks for your work, Matthew – we are very pleased with both pieces. AW Stoke Gifford, Bristol

Hi Matthew, it was nice to meet you too and once again many thanks, you’ve done an amazing job and I’m so pleased with it. I took photos and sent them to my brother and sister and they couldnt believe it was the same desk. AH, Hertfordshire

Hi Matthew, Thanks for the info regarding the wax. The desk was safely transported in my car and takes pride of place in our house. It is much admired. Thanks again for completing such an excellent restoration.NR. SW London

Matthew, Both the marquetry desk and the chest bow fronted were done very well indeed. xxxx has the chest in the bedroom and it looks super. I remember the state of the side and legs and runners so you have made a great job. I thought I was to get the card table back this weekend but xxxxx says he wants it! Family heirloom. BA, Essex

Dear Matthew, Thank you again for the super work you did on my fathers bookcase, which is now passed on to my son! KT, Henleaze, Bristol

Dear Matthew, Just a belated thank you for doing such a nice repair on the chest of drawers. Confident it will last for many years now. MG, Keynsham, Bristol

Hello Matthew, You may remember that you did a wonderful job restoring a sideboard and occasional table for us – perhaps 3 years ago? We now have a pine cupboard that needs a bit of attention – stripping, polishing and catch replacing. Are you interested? You’re welcome to come and take a look – or we could drop it in to your workshop if thats easier? Best Wishes SB, Clifton, Bristol

Matthew: Thanks, and thanks for the advice. I would not be happy for one of the country’s finest restorers to succumb to a respiratory ailment! Your oak dining table extension will long last in the annals of the trades greatest achievements!! AB, Powys, Wales

Hi Matthew, I don’t know if you remember but you restored a victorian bow – fronted chest of drawers for me a couple of years ago (you delivered it to my house in Portishead) Still using the drawers every day, still looking lovely!

Hello Matthew Thank you so much for your fast response and advice. You’re a clever guy, the photos of your work are beautiful. SM

Hello from xxxxxxx. Thanks for the pictures. You must have a magic wand somewhere in the shop. or some sort of cloak of restoration that you wrap the clock in to bring everything right…. I am very much looking forward to seeing the transformation. MD, Tintagel, Cornwall

The regulator is in our reception room. I like to just stop and look at it. You did an amazing job. She has so many battle scars that give her street cred and character. You’ve done well to save her. MD, Tintagel, Cornwall

Hi Matthew, Thanks so much for the fabulous restoration work. I’m so pleased with the results. I really didnt think the scorch mark could be removed from the desk. The darker hue works a treat and, to my mind makes the whole desk look lovelier than before. And the dining table is transformed beyond recognition. I absolutely love it. S, Clifton,Bristol

Hi Matthew and much appreciate the full and informative reply. Please don’t apologise for being the bearer of negative views, as you’ve pretty much told me what I expected. my mother in law has limited funds and your advice will prevent an expensive restoration against an item of very limited value, as I suspected. Thank you. DR

Hi Matthew, frets arrived safely. They are magnificent just what I hoped for and they fit without any adjustments, thank you very much. J.G . Edinburgh, Scotland

Hi Matthew……….. Thank you once again for your tremendous work. All the pieces look fantastic as usual. RC, Longwell Green, Bristol

Hi, Tables look lovely – thank you very much for doing such a great job. CP, Bristol

Matthew, Just a quick note to thank you for the job you did on the table. As I said when I dropped it off, my grandfather bought it when he started work, so it has a lot of sentimental value. It is great to have it back restored to its former glory, having pride of place in my hallway without having to have the stains and marks covered! Once again, many thanks. AP. Chipping Sodbury, South Glos

Matthew, I would like to thank you again for your excellent restoration of the three pieces. I am very pleased with them and they are improving the feel of the new house………….. JB, Westbury On Trym, Bristol

Dear Matthew, Just a quick note to say many thanks. The clock looks superb.

Dear Matthew, I am delighted to write that the extender mechanism arrived this morning and fits the screw thread perfectly.I have now repaired my dining room table, and it extends and contracts just like new. I would like to say that I have been most impressed with every aspect of our dealings, from the speed of response to my emails, through your great diligence in making sure that the extender was a match for my table, and perseverance in finding the best shipping price. I heartily recommend your services to any other prospective customer. RS, Austria
