Over the years Mike has built up an invaluable store of ‘breakers’ – old furniture, veneers and off cuts of woods of all types and ages upon which to draw on in the course of his restoration work. This store, together with experience, a well equipped workshop, an eye for detail and a love of restoration, are the ingredients of Michael Smith-Wood’s antique furniture restoration service.
