The authors of Furniture Restoration have been professional restorers for thirty years and pull from their vast experience to provide tips for restoring furniture, frames, and other objects. In the introduction, they say the book was written for “would-be restorers…amateur restorers…professional restorers…and non-craftsmen…who would like to guide restorers.” In the book they cover topics such as repairing structures and restoring surfaces; wood and its problems; restoring veneers and gilding and a lot more. The book is filled with color photos showing objects “in-process” as well as the finished pieces and many how-to step-by-step photos.
