Other Work

The last few years have seen JM French Polishing increasingly working for interior designers and architects.

We are now called in on a growing number of projects in the London area that involve renovation and re-polishing of all the woodwork, top to bottom.

Oak panelled room restored

This oak panelled room had discoloured over time. After site visits and consultation with the customer during which we provided samples, the decision was made to chemically strip all of the surfaces and lightly bleach the woodwork, before finishing with a bees wax. The result completely transformed the room, lightening the hallway and giving a more spacious feel throughout.

The client says...

... we just wanted to thank you very much for doing such a great job – we're really pleased with the result. Thanks too for getting it all done by Friday, so that we could move back in, and for cleaning up so carefully. Regards,


Oak beams and window frames modernised

Liming is a finish that was very popular in the late 80s and early 90s and is making a comeback.

Over the last few years we have been approached by a couple of customers to lime; one job involved liming old pieces of furniture, and the other to lime all of the oak beams and exposed wood work in their manor house in Epsom, which completely transformed the interior from an old to a modern look.

These photos shows this project, where we stripped all of the exposed oak beams and window frames in the property and then lime washed the wood to a modern finish.


On Site Polishing & Maintenance

We have been providing an ongoing maintenance services for many offices and other business in Surrey and London for the some years years. This includes keeping all furniture and fixtures and fittings maintained to a high standard; we make good any damaged surfaces, and then preserve and protect them. Our craftsman take great care and are fully insured to work on site.

We can visit outside office working hours in order to undertake work without affecting staff. We take great care to control dust using extraction units.
