This book and DVD set covers all the basics-how to evaluate the condition of a piece, how to repair and revive finishes to enhance their beauty while preserving their patina, and how to completely refinish a piece. Watch the DVD and then follow along in the book, and you'll be making old furniture look great in no time.
