French Polishing and Enamelling
This volume contains a practical handbook on the construction of cabinet furniture, with detailed information on the use of tools and numerous recipes for making polishes, varnishes, glaze-lacquers, and revivers. This handbook will appeal to those occupied in the restoration and selling of antique furniture, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: The Improving and Preparation of Furniture Woods, Stains and Imitations, French Polishing, Cheap Work, Re-Polishing Old Work, Spirit Varnishing, General Instructions, Enamelling, American Polishing Processes, and Materials Used . Many vintage books like this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality addition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on woodworking.
