Andy and team offered some very helpful advice and options for the refurbishment of my vintage dining table with 2 leaves. I hated the colour, the finish and the extending mechanism was not smooth. Andy helped me choose a more suitable finish and luckily when removing the previous polish found that the table was already the perfect colour. My “new” table is even better that I imagined. Also, delivered on time and kept me up to date. A perfect experience. Thank you.

Andy came and sorted out two drawers which were completely stuck on a chest of drawers, and also repaired an antique box for me. Workmanship was excellent, and Andy was very punctual and tidy. So grateful to him and very happy to recommend.

Andy restored a set of six dining chairs for us. Some of them were in very poor condition but he worked wonders with them. He even sourced some African hardwood to patch them up.

I inherited a 1950s Gordon Rusell dressing table (plus rattan stool) which was in a sorry state. It was very faded, had a huge water mark, numerous blemishes, and the support for the mirror was busted. When Andy and son brought it back last week, it was a true Repair Shop I moment - I literally had tears in my eyes because of the transformation. The gorgeous warm colour of the wood is incredible. It genuinely is a pleasure doing business with Andy. He is amazingly knowledgeable, polite, punctual and good at keeping in touch on the progress of the job. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Coffee table brought back to life.

We had bought a nice second-hand G-Plan -style coffee table from antique shop. Within a month, while we were away, the young folk placed their hot take-away containers on it and ruined its appearance with big pale marks . Oh and possibly me as well with a coffee mug. My wife was very fed up, I had gotten French Polishing to work on another table a few years back when my wife mixed up Mr Sheen with Oven Cleaner, so happy to use again as they did an excellent job. Mr Stonebridge collected the coffee table and returned within the week . Marks are all gone , and as requested, a smooth tough coating has been applied capable of withstanding us clumsy folk . Most importantly , my exacting wife is v pleased with the results. Price very reasonable, Quality excellent. Recommended.

Damaged table top

The surface of my poor old mid century modern dining table was badly damaged and I didn’t hold out much hope. Andy came along (all the way down to Devon), took one look and reassuringly said he could bring it back to full glory for me. Which he has done. Brilliantly! I don’t know how he did it, but my table is more beautiful than ever. No fuss or drama, just a beautiful job by a master of his craft. Highly recommended. Would definitely use Andy’s service again.

'Mouseman' bowl

Impressed by the stunning reviews of Andy's skills and care in restoring beautiful furniture, I hesitantly approached him for advice on how to remove a circular water mark from a rather more modest treasure - my carved Robert Thompson 'Mouseman' fruit bowl. To my delight, he readily took it on as a project, and has transformed the 70-80 year old bowl into the flawless object it once was. I could not be more thrilled. Huge thanks Andy.

Andrew managed to collect my chair within a few hours of my initial call and dropped it back after repairing the leg to a high standard a few weeks later. Great service!

A ‘Repair Shop’ moment

We got Andy to sympathetically repair/restore an antique chest of drawers. We thought it was 100 years old, but expert Andy identified it was a cross between Victorian and Georgian - being altered/repaired over the years! We were expecting the drawers to look shiny and parts repaired, but nothing prepared us for the wonderful sight we saw when Andy lifted the cloth to reveal a masterpiece! So shiny, beautiful and all broken parts repaired. Thanks Andy
