My name is Piers Shrapnell and my company is PJS Restoration which I founded in 2003.
I have had an interest in antiques ever since my parents dragged me round antique shops when I was young.
I grew up finding I like to fix things and fate led me to antiques after completing a French polishing course.
I then went onto completing an HND in furniture restoration at London Guildhall university from 1996-1999 which included furniture making and various aspects of furniture making.
I have previously worked for companies in South East London and the Home Counties.
The services I offer are mainly cabinet making and French polishing, but furniture restoration covers many aspects including:  carving, desktop re-leathering, veneering and small metalwork etc.
