we used a chap from west Kirby to French polish an old oak dining table and 4 chairs--but werent too impressed.
Wonder if that's the same one who used to be in Heswall ? He had a chair of mine to re-string (if that's the right word) and polish. Never heard anything for ages. Tried to phone a couple of times, no answer. Eventually went to his place which had closed ! Spoke to a couple of local people and they said he'd moved to West Kirby. Tracked him down and DID get my chair back. Cheeky monkey. He was getting on a bit, so maybe it's not the same chap.
