Review:

"A wonderful source book of useful advise - a very comprehensive book." -- Daily Telegraph

"This is a book which has a place in most practical homes and is an extremely good buy." -- Woodworking Crafts

"This revised and expanded guide offers both step-by-step instruction for furniture and decorative item repair, but at the same time offers history lessons on all aspects of furniture, making it a useful resource for people shopping for furniture as well as those restoring." -- Home & Design "Many how-to-books depend largely on your imagination to pull a project together.Fortunately, that is not the case with this superbly illustrated volume, which can walk you through any repair or restoration.There are 14 chapters that focus on the materials and methods needed to put together glass, bamboo, leather, upholstery, stone, paper and whatever else if falling apart.Just because something is broken doesn't mean you should throw it away.The know-how to fix it is in this book."Country Almanac, Summer 2005

'...A clear, interesting and useful book.' -- Hampstead and Highgate Express
