About Our Company

Mr McGuire began his apprenticeship in 1999 under the instruction of two generations of highly skilled French Polishers who passed down their methods and techniques. The guidance Mr McGuire received gave him a strict grounding in the traditional French Polishing techniques.

As an apprentice, Mr McGuire developed an analytical approach to each task taking into account the surroundings, the requirements of the customer and the most effective and efficient process to use. During the apprenticeship, Mr McGuire undertook work ranging from domestic furniture and antique restoration to commercial refits and maintenance contracts.

We at A. McGuire’s Traditional French Polishing have enhanced conventional methods to accommodate modern materials and styles without compromising on traditional values. In our 10 years of trading, we have built an excellent reputation and have carried out projects for many prestigious corporations, architects, interior designers, antique collectors and preservation companies.
