to Edmund Czajkowski & Son Ltd
We are a specialist firm situated
in Woodhall Spa, near Lincoln, Lincolnshire, within the East
Midlands, England, designing and making individual items
of furniture and restoring furniture clocks and barometers. Using
traditional craftsmen’s methods and techniques, passed
from one generation to another, we turn your ideas into furniture
of a quality associated more with sought after antiques than
with 21st century production.
Only the finest materials are used: from exotic hardwoods
such as ebony, rosewood and mahogany, to English oak, elm and
ash. Experience in selecting timber is essential if the finished
pieces are to stand the test of time. All the timber comes
from sustainable sources.
Our skills in carving, French polishing, marquetry, inlay work
and upholstery, mean that no matter how small your commission,
be it a table, decorative box or large dresser, a chair or a dining
table – you can be equally assured of the quality of each
item. Above all we like to work with you in bringing the furniture
you visualise, to life.
We are also experts in the sympathetic conservation and restoration
of furniture, clocks (cases and movements) and barometers. We utilise
the skills discussed above to ensure that your item retains its
value and will enhance your home for future generations.
We can arrange delivery to all parts of Lincolnshire, the East
Midlands, and elsewhere in Britain and Europe as required.

and restorers with the Institute
of conservation ICON (ACR) an internationally recognized body.
