Product Information

Women, as well as men, now can repair, remodel, and make many types of upholstered furniture at home with the aid of this book, originally published in 1956. Although it has been prepared primarily for the amateur craftsman in the home workshop, it also can be used in craft classes.

The specialized tools and materials required are illustrated and described in Chapter 1. Well-illustrated, step-by-step procedures enable the inexperienced to make the more commonly encountered furniture repairs, to remodel outmoded furniture, and to make entirely new pieces of upholstered furniture. Included in the book are repairs such as re-gluing loose rungs, replacing loose and torn webbing, and retying loose springs; remodeling projects such as old chairs and beds; and new furniture to make, such as the dressing table and the telephone stand.
