It is a pleasure working with Andrew and Mark at Emmanuel College. They have assisted us with ingenious carving and gilding conservations and all manner of everyday restorations. Their extensive knowledge and experience has also been a boon in seeking out possible new acquisitions for our collection of fine furniture.

We first met Andrew and Mark in 2003 and have come to know their work well. They have undertaken a diverse range of projects for us including antique repairs, design and manufacture of original work, and help in finding antiques. They seem to know instinctively what is required. We confidently leave each item in their hands and have always been delighted by the sympathetic and very professional results. It has always been a pleasure to do business with them and we look forward to the next time.

We have been using Andrew and Mark for repairs and restorations to the College furniture, interior woodwork and antiques for many years. At Jesus we value the wide range of services and the personal attention we receive from this small local workshop.
