Illustrated with line drawings. Reprint. From the cover: “Restoring a dilapidated old piece of furniture to its former beauty can be a rare pleasure and may save you some money, but to many amateurs it seems an almost impossible task. There are so many materials and methods, and a lot of the advice is contradictory. In this book two furniture designers, Albert Jackson and David Day, cut through the mystique of the traditional craft and show that renovating old furniture is perfectly possible for amateurs, using ordinary materials available from your local DIY store. Each job is described with detailed step-by-step instructions and there are over five hundred illustrations to show you how to go about the work.”
