Fixing up furniture can be deeply rewarding, fun and even lucrative. Fix up your battered wooden pieces - whether yard sale find or beloved family heirloom - with the help of The Ultimate Guide to Furniture Repair & Refinishing, a guide as comprehensive and authoritative as its name suggests.

You'll learn how to conduct a through exam of the furniture and be able to assess what the likely repair effort will entail. This information is valuable whether you're evaluating a thrift store gem you can't wait to tackle yourself or a mostly intact piece at an auction. You’ll learn what tools and materials you need to remove or preserve original finishes, repair loose or broken joints, refurbish warped wood, and other essential tasks. There are even fascinating sidebars that will increase your overall understanding of woodworking, such as tips for discerning what kind of wood your pieces is made of.

The element of fun is never far from the discussion - both enjoyment of the process and the satisfaction of using your handwork for the sake of improvement.

The book includes more than 500 color step-by-step instructions, photographs, and detailed drawings to give you true guidance.

"This is a comprehensive book that covers most types of furniture restoration a home craftsman might attempt, including wood repair, finish repair and complete refinishing. And it does this with hundreds of very helpful and well-done pictures and drawings.” - Bob Flexner, author of Understanding Wood Finishing
