Our TechnicianMy name is Dean Cudd.
I started working part time in 1984 for a company in Birmingham that specialised in high quality traditional antique furniture restoration and made bespoke antique reproduction furniture working on weekends and in the school holidays to earn a little extra pocket money. In 1986 I left school and started working full time for the company and I also went to college to do my City and Guilds.
Over the years of working there I was taught how to restore antique and vintage furniture using traditional methods that have been used for over a hundred years like veneer in laying and repairs right through to the traditional finishing with oils wax and french polishing.
I also use modern spray finishing lacquers in a spray booth finishing in a clear natural finish or painted finishes. I worked for this company right up to 1991, then I decided to go self employed and set up DMC Refinishing and set up a small workshop carrying out all types of furniture restoration and refinishing which was always my dream to do. Then one day I was approached by a friend that had a kitchen that he wanted refurbished. This was slightly new to me as I had never spray finished a kitchen onsite before so I took it on for the experience and knowledge and now years later I have completed lots of kitchen cabinet resprays and furniture restoration projects for hundreds of customers and repeat clients throughout the Midlands.
I still have the passion and love my job even after all the years of doing it.
