"I took a very scratched veneered desk which Ollie showed me how to recover. A lot of hard work stripping, sanding, grain filling and building up lots of coats of finish. I wanted to lighten the colour and with his help have given it a much nicer appearance.
He also showed me how to french polish a walnut coffee table which now looks like the day it was bought over 40 years ago. I now have confidence to use powered sanding tools and enough basic knowledge to have a go at home. I met other students and Ollie encouraged us all to learn about each other’s pieces. I would recommend anyone to take a course with Ollie and will save up to go again."
