From the cover: “As author of more than thirty books on woodwork and related subjects, Charles H. Hayward has earned a very high reputation for his ability to express in writing an extensive practical knowledge. Furniture Repairs is based on his many years’ experience in the antique repairs trade and describes the professional method of renovating and repairing antique and second-hand furniture. It includes cleaning, reconditioning and repolishing as well as actual woodwork repairs and there is a chapter on the treatment of gilt work. Emphasis is placed on the difference between dealing with period as distinct from merely second-hand furniture. The recommended methods are clearly illustrated by photographs and diagrams.”
