Authors Ina Brosseau Marx and Allen Marx share more than thirty years of experience in all kinds of antique furniture restoration. The first chapter gives readers an overview of restoration and explains exactly how to tell when a piece is valuable enough to use a professional restorer. The rest of the book guides the reader through furniture restoration and repairs of every kind, looking at common problems on different pieces and some quick fixes as well as the properties of wood, repairing joinery, restoring surfaces, making molds and casts, restoring colour, repairing veneers, finishes, and ornamented surfaces, and much, much more. More than 600 full-colour photographs and dozens of before-and-afters let readers see exactly how to fix whatever is wrong without going wrong themselves.
