Stephen reviewed: French Polishing workshop with Rob Cain

"Two of us did the English Polisher course at the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Rob was very patient and taught us a great deal. We couldn't believe that we'd both created a glass-like polished surface on the old table tops we'd been working on during the day. Highly rewarding and thank you, Rob!"

The Old Polishing Shop responded:

" Absolutely a great pleasure , and it's fantastic to see you achieve this within the time frame , as well as removing scratch marks and making a fad , great afternoon, speak soon Rob "
