Polishing

I offer a traditional French polishing service for both upright and grand pianos.

Review

"Dan took my grandfathers baby grand with signs of age and turned it into a work of art. Dan has pride in his work which is clearly shown by his immense enthusiasm and finish."

History

French polishing became prominent in the 18th century. In the Victorian era, French polishing was commonly used on mahogany and other expensive timbers. It was considered the best finish for fine furniture and string instruments such as pianos and guitars.
