Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Old furniture, whether a treasured heirloom or consignment shop find, is often better made than anything that can be bought today. So, why let damaged finishes detract from a beautiful piece when you can repair or refinish it in a way that preserves the piece and makes it look as good as new? Author Jeff Jewitt, a professional refinisher with over 30 years' experience, shares his tricks, shortcuts, and tools of the trade in "Refinishing Furniture Made Simple," an easy-to-follow book/DVD set that is sure to fly off the shelves.

Weekend refinishers as well as professional woodworkers will benefit from the insider tips on how to evaluate the condition of a piece to decide the best strategy for rejuvenating it, repair and revive finishes to enhance their beauty while preserving their patina, and match an old finish for a seamless look.
