Lancaster French Polishing

            & Fine Finishing




To give you piece of mind here are a few of our customers who have reviewed our work.

"I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Freddy and his company to anyone requiring repair, refinishing or restoration of any furniture or wooden items. His courtesy, responsiveness and professional craftsmanship has restored and upcycled treasured pieces of my furniture. He was able to give my dark oak dining set a new lease of life with subtle Farrow & Ball hues. He even transformed our very gloomy dressing area into a light filled space by refinishing the doors in a light, bright and scratch resistant finish."

       - Mrs Turner.

"From 18th century wood flooring, to Victorian marquetry table tops, pieces of Georgian furniture, and 19th century stair bannisters and treads – in many different woods from walnut, to oak to mahogany - Freddy has done a series of both straightforward and complicated jobs for us, using various polishing techniques and repairs.

 He is always obliging and helpful, diligent and careful and carries out work without delay producing an excellent result always in a good and complimentary colour to the original piece. 

We are very happy to recommend his work. Just make sure he makes sure that his dog does not eat his lunch!"

       -Mr and Mrs Hargreave. 

"We asked Freddy to come and assess whether our rather shabby wooden furniture could be renovated, and it was clear from our first meeting that this is a young man who is passionate about his work and is willing to go the extra mile to achieve a good result. The pieces he has already worked on now look really handsome, and he also gave us advice about how to maintain them. We are looking forward to getting the next batch back - and also looking around the house to see if there is anything else he could work on!"

       -Mr and Mrs Smith.



"We have recently had several major pieces of restoration work done by Freddy of Lancaster French Polishing and are absolutely delighted with the results. For example, a table had been declared by someone else as not worth repairing and yet Freddy brought it back to its original condition. We were very impressed by his integrity and professional manner. Freddy went out of his way to be as helpful as possible and to work to timescales which suited us.  We would recommend him most highly and would certainly request his services again".

       -Mr and Mrs Blonsky.

"I have been using the professional and quality services of Lancaster french polishing for a number of years.
From the stunning French polished floors throughout the whole of the downstairs of my home to the pine kitchen they revamped by hand painting the units I now have the beautiful kitchen and floors I always wanted!
I couldn't be happier with the quality of work they carried out.
The finish is excellent and looks great!
When carrying out the work in my home they were very professional and tidy and left no mess at all at the end of each day.
Highly recommended you won't be disappointed!"

      -Mrs Heald.


"Freddy was recommended to us, and this guy has just transformed our 12 year old Ash framed MFI kitchen into a brand new modern, fashionable kitchen bringing it in line with up to date high street brands.
We are so pleased that we met Freddy as the results are stunning.
Many thanks Freddy."

      -Mr Loughhead.


"We were looking for a craftsman to refurbish an old oak table, a corner panelled oak storage box and an old chair with a broken seat. We searched the internet and found Lancaster French Polishing's website. Freddy responded to our enquiry, collected the furniture and delivered the items back within two weeks. The quality of his workmanship proved to be excellent, refurbishing the pieces sympathetically with regard to their age. The customer service he delivered was superb at all times and we would not hesitate to recommend Freddy's services to family and friends."

         -Mr and Mrs Taylor.


"Freddy, I cant believe how good you made the table and benches look!

Thanks a million."

      -Grey Gables Bowness on Windermere.



“ WE were delighted with the service Freddy provided . He came and collected our tired

and neglected Ercol dining set and when it was returned two weeks later it was restored to it's former glory. His attention to detail and pride in his work was evident.

We are now looking forward to having our Ercol sofa restored."

          -Mr and Mrs Bigmore.



"I had my baby grand piano re French polished by Freddy. What a great job. Looks amazing and Freddy is a truly nice guy as well. Win win.

Thank you Freddy." 

         -Mrs Dullage.

"Because of the quality of Freddy’s work and his absolute dedication to customer service, I have used Lancaster French Polishing on various occasions. He has completely transformed a very ‘tired’ Edwardian display unit and several occasional tables. In addition.  He has french polished a new oak staircase and all the internal doors to the property – as well as the front door. I have been delighted with each and every job and would happily recommend Lancaster French Polishing to anyone looking for a first-class job."
