French Polishing
I trained as a French polisher of pianos with a locally based Music shop in Cambridge back in the mid 1960's.

Here are some examples of my work. The upright is a full grain gloss finish, the traditional way all piano's in the past where finished. The Steinway Grand made by John Broadwood & Sons London, is from the Arts and Craft period, veneered in quarter sawn Oak. The finish is also French Polished which is left open grained, then dulled down & waxed. The extending dining table was a total re-built. It came to me with one leaf missing, I made another from reclaimed Mahogany. The entire tops were re-finished using Mylands heat resistant French polish, then dulled down & waxed to produce a satin finish. The completed table measured 8 ft 6 ins x 3 ft 6 ins.
