Do you have old furniture that needs a lift? Talk to an expert! In a compilation of his finest articles and most acclaimed techniques, a highly respected furniture restorer chats entertainingly about the diverse and challenging projects he encounters in his workshop, and leads you through the process from start to finish. His knowledge and enthusiasm shine through, whether he's describing how to fix cock beading on drawer fronts, restore a longcase clock, or patch up a table attacked by a tomcat. Repair a laminated split on a Chippendale-style carver, refurbish a misused chest of drawers, fortify a pianoforte, copy period chairs, and re-create damaged cabriole legs for a chest on a stand. Large, close-up color pictures make every technique vividly clear, and reveal what miracles can take place with just a little woodworking smarts and a lifetime of experience!
