Client Commission

I had the pleasure of refinishing this beautiful 18th Century rosewood bookshelf in my Blockley workshop. The rosewoods character spoke for itself so I refrained from any grain fillers or staining.  I stripped, neutralised, very lightly sanded and French polished in a pale shellac so not to hide the fantastic tone and figurings.

A truly great piece for my French Polishing portfolio.
