Woodwork: Repair & Renovation

Woodwork Repairs - Bring your wooden furniture back to life. 

Wooden seating and desking used in modern working environments requires regular maintenance and repair to keep them in tip top condition.

Most traditionally constructed items were only designed for domestic use. In modern work environments with ventilation and central heating systems the wood dries out and the joints become loose. With the extra pressure on the loose dowels and tenons the wooden frame can break or split sometimes leaving only the fabric holding a chair together.
