It all starts here with the wood (image). Timber is checked as it is unloaded from the delivery lorry to make sure it's good enough for a Revival Bed. Each week we handmade around twenty beds to order. This can be anything from a 3'0" sleigh beds right up to an 8'0" four poster.

Over 135 years of woodworking experience

When we need to adapt one of our beds everyone has a hand in the build; from cutting and sizing the individual rails, stiles and panels to making sure every joint fits snugly.

Hand making the components sizing the wood panels, assembling the under bed drawers, it's all in a days work.

Another 50 years adding the finishing touch

Making furniture is the first part of the story. We also have to put on paint, wax and lacquer finishes. Out paint finishes require a deft touch to provide the different levels of ageing and distressing that our customers like. Our finishers have also been working with us for years.
