This book's subtitle, "Expert Step-By-Step Techniques Shown In More Than 1200 Photographs" gives you a good sense of its scope. The expert advice comes from W.J. Cook & Sons, a second generation family workshop with deep insight about the techniques and tools involved in furniture restoration.

The book covers problems that you’re likely to encounter, such as scratches, dents, warps, splits, and watermarks. It provides detailed instructions on how to assess and address each problem effectively, with step-by-step instructions accompanied by photographs, making it easy to follow along and understand each restoration technique. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced restorer, the clear guidance provided in the book ensures that you can tackle projects with confidence.

The Practical Illustrated Guide covers routine repairs like fixing loose joints and broken legs along with more specialized skills such as turning, carving, graining, gilding, marquetry, and parquetry. It features seven restoration projects, showing the tasks involved in redeeming furniture ruined by fire, water and more standard wear and tear.

Sturdy hardcover with photographs to illustrate every insight.

"Big glossy pages are beautifully displayed with impressive photographs and it is simply a pleasure to read. This book has been lovingly crafted and is a great addition to any workshop." - Traditional Woodworking
