The Furniture Bible (Hardback)

Christophe Pourny

-  

The heart of the book is an overview of Pourny's favourite techniques - ceruse, vernis anglais, and water gilding, among many others - with full-colour step-by-step photographs to ensure that readers can easily replicate each refinishing technique at home. Pourny brings these techniques to life with a chapter devoted to real-world refinishing projects, from a veneered table to an ebonized desk, a gilt frame to a painted northern European hutch. Rounding out this comprehensive guide is care and maintenance information, including how to properly clean leather, polish hardware, fix a broken leg, andreplace felt pads, as well as recipes to make your own wax, shellac, varnish, stain, and more.
