An attractive guide to buying, repairing, and finishing furniture, almost too nice to keep in the workshop, for woodworkers and hobbyists. Color photos and illustrations showing the internal structure of different styles of furniture accompany instructions for duplicating missing parts, re-upholstery, caning, refinishing, gilding, and restoring har

This isn't to slam the British, just to point out that some of the terminology and names used in this book may throw some people off. Even some of the terms used for various parts of a piece of furniture are different. Not to worry, since there's lots of four-color illustrations to guide you, although I prefer the color photos used in Hingley's book.
One final note: Most of this work seems centered around the repair and restoration of chairs and tables, although many of the tips and methods can be applied to many types of furniture. If chairs and tables are your particular forte or speciality, this might be the book to go with.
Hope this info helps.
