John's nephew, Ralph Widdicombe, joined him as a designer, and eventually became known as the Dean of furniture design. They were to work together for 53 years until John retired in 1951.

The ability to save money on a product obviously entices many people to spend their money. However, it is not without its flaws, the most important of which being that flat pack furniture warehouses offer quantity over quality. This can only be provided by furniture which has been built by an expert craftsperson. The materials used will also be more refined, and could mean the difference between owning solid oak furniture and something made from particle board. Solid furniture such as this will be incredibly durable. This has made it popular among consumers, however this is also due to it being able to be highly customised. It can be made to fit certain spaces within a house. Somebody who is building furniture professionally will take their time to do a good job. Customers who prefer their furniture in this way will be prepared to pay more for the extra work involved. They realise that they quality of the work is reflected in the price.
Furniture refinishing, however, is not just about removing the old finish. Refinishing furniture requires stripping the old finish and then preparing the surface for a new finish by sanding the surface and wiping down the sawdust that sanding stirred up. Only after the surface has been prepared can you start the final step in this furniture restoration project: applying the new finish.
