The Practical Illustrated Guide to Furniture Repair & Restoration

Author(s): William Cook


How to repair loose joints, broken chair legs and damaged finishes: this comprehensive book is an essential guide to repairing and conserving your furniture. There is expert information on specialist skills such as turning, carving, upholstery, graining, gilding, marquetry and parquetry, as well as a directory of tools, materials and equipment. Clear step-by-step techniques show how to deal with common problems such as scratches, dents, warps, splits and watermarks, and the main types of furniture are considered in turn, such as tables, chests, cabinets and chairs. Seven in-depth projects put the individual techniques into context, including repairing an 18th-century carved chair and restoring a badly fire-damaged Regency table
