Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a professional, qualified & experienced conservator / restorer of antique furniture I read this book with interest. It is well written with clear colour photographs illustrating some of the numerous techniques required. However I must take issue with the author when it comes to his choice of adhesive, PVA which he freely uses through out this book. This glue SHOULD NEVER BE USED when re-gluing furniture joints etc as this adhesive does not have the ability to be ` unstuck ` ie it will not allow future restorers to easily dismantle without doing damage. I also feel that PVA glue is not the best to use when re-lining a table , much better to apply wall paper paste which will not ` grab ` and allow time for adjustment.
