Bill Pyke - 30+ years experience in wood finishing

Where fine finishing is an art that brings out the best!

refinished hutch - beautiful

Bill Pyke finishing brings versatility to the project - and the piece. Although he uses today's materials which better withstand the rigours of life, he can still deliver a traditional, classical look.

"Varnish looks nice," he says, "but doesn't wear well."

From left, this remarkable desk welcomes clients into a chiropractic office in Bridgewater. Bill used mahogany veneer for the project. "The trick," recalls Dr. Laurel Cowie, "was to bend it without cracking. He has an excellent understanding of finishing - I was assured it would be beautiful and it would stand up - it is, and it does."
