Wood was originally limed to protect it against attack from insects. Today, limed
oak is used for decorative purposes. Your oak can be limed in a range of pastel colours,
complementing your décor and design needs.
Ebonising (black French polish)
Ebony is a very expensive hardwood, often used for mouldings and wooden trims. In
French polishing terms, 'ebonising' refers to treating other woods to simulate ebony.
Washing and Reviving
Old wood, such as furniture, panelling or doors can lose its colour and lustre. This
is often caused by dirt, or an accumulation of wax. Old wood can be washed and revived,
restoring its beautiful patina and appearance.
