About Us

Dovetail Restoration is a long-established antique furniture repair and restoration business and is located in Harwell Village, Oxfordshire.  Over the years I have repaired and restored a huge variety of items of antique furniture and decorative objects for many clients, both local (e.g. Oxford, Abingdon, Didcot, Wantage, Wallingford, Witney, Newbury) and throughout Oxfordshire and into Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, and Wiltshire.

I  have extensive experience in the restoration of English furniture from a wide range of periods from Jacobean through to William and Mary, Queen Anne, Georgian, Regency, Victorian,  Edwardian and later into the mid 20th century.  I have also restored numerous pieces of continental, North American and Chinese Furniture.

Further information about some of my previous restoration projects including restoring chairs, tables, cupboards, dressers, cabinets, long case clocks, mirrors and other items of furniture is included in the antique restoration examples section of this website along with more general thoughts about antique furniture and restoration  issues.

All work is carried out in my well equipped studio in Harwell Village.

Larger items can be collected and delivered back to you (a charge applies) or you may  arrange to bring them directly to my studio.
