Furniture Repair. All aspects of furniture repair, restoration and conservation are undertaken in our busy workshop by a West Dean trained craftsman. Bruce was at West Dean in the full-time furniture restoration course almost 30 years ago. Since then he has had the pleasure of restoring all kinds of furniture locally both antique and modern. Using traditional techniques he is happiest in his Repair Shop surrounded by wood shavings and French polish.
