Front Cover
Barron's, 2000 - Crafts & Hobbies - 64 pages
Five color-illustrated how-to books make up a brand new series that will inspire readers to build their own beautiful wooden furniture. Clearly illustrated, carefully detailed, and easy-to-follow instructions will transform beginners into capable craftsmen and handy home improvement experts. Instructions cover virtually every aspect of working with wood, from construction techniques to finishing, staining, painting, and decorating items to professional standards. Each volume starts with instructions on use of correct varieties of wood, tools, and materials, then presents a series of woodworking projects, progressing from the relatively simple to the more complex. Sequentially numbered photos with detailed captions carry readers through each step of every project.

Instruction covers repair and refinishing of aged or damaged wooden furniture, and restoring pieces to their original beauty and stability.
