This practical guide to the traditional methods and materials of uphostery gives advice on the tools, equipment and materials that will be needed, and provides tips on what to look for when choosing and buying old upholstered furniture. All the basic skills of upholstery are covered with detailed instruction on how to tackle any upholstery job. The book also contains complete "works projects" in order of skill required - from the relatively simple drop-in seat to the more ambitious easy chair or couch. Each project is brought to life with step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow working diagrams. At the end of the book is an A-Z section with facts and tips for any problem or peculiarity the reader may encounter while upholstering. Desmond Gaston is the author of "Care and Repair of Furniture".
