Restoring Antique Furniture is an invaluable guide to antique furniture - whether or not you intend to actually engage in the restoration process. The book will enable you to really understand a piece of furniture - its age, style and quality - and gives you insight into the best ways to restore and preserve it.

You’ll learn how to strengthen fractured parts, repair construction joints, cover damaged areas, and replace lost hardware. Focusing on furniture made in the US between 1750 and 1850, the book guides its readers with step-by-step instructions on sample projects, including restoring an early rocker and chest of drawers, repairing a table leg, constructing a drawer using a dovetail joint, replacing the swing rail on a gateleg table, and forming a molding.

You’ll learn to avoid common mistakes of restoration - whether you’re contemplating doing the work yourself or just want to understand how restoration affects the value of a particular item. Great for woodworkers, collectors and dealers alike. With over 250 illustrations and photographs of restored pieces.
