Hand made faithful copy furniture to match an original piece

Producing matching furniture by making faithful copies is the ideal way to complete a set of chairs or produce a piece that complements an existing collection or a period setting. Whatever the reason, each copy is carefully constructed using exactly the same methods as the original and in many cases uses original antique timbers chosen specially to match in every way, particularly in the most visible areas where it matters most.

The process requires all the skill of an experienced cabinet maker, using the original to produce a pattern of each component to form a cutting board. The design of each of these components is carefully transferred to the selected timber before being cut, shaped and assembled in the traditional manner using reversible glues. Finally the item is colour-matched with an appropriate level of distressing to make the faithful copy match the original.

So, if you have a chair missing from a set, or would like to expand a certain range of furniture, or even as this client did, come across a picture of a piece that will complement your room or home contact us at Wheathills for a no obligation quotation. We will happily discuss your requirements with you .
