The comprehensive guide to restoring, transforming, preserving, and learning about your furniture.

The Furniture Bible
[click here for a preview of The Furniture Bible]

In Christophe’s first book, you’ll learn everything you need to know to restore, update, and care for your furniture—from antiques to midcentury pieces, from family heirlooms to funky flea-market finds. Unlike the snoozy workbooks currently on the market, this is a stealth technical manual embedded in the context of a seductive coffee-table book, with more than 500 full-color photographs and illustrations. The pitch-perfect combination of hardworking information and a glamorous package, this is sure to become the go-to furniture manual for design junkies and hobby woodworkers alike.

You’ll find:
-An illustrated history of furniture
-Restoration basics
-Real-world refinishing projects
-Tutorials on ceruse, vernis anglais, water gilding, and all of Christophe’s other favorite techniques
-Care and maintenance information
-Plus recipes to make your own wax, shellac, varnish, stain, and more.
