This is an oldie, but goodie. Very detailed, clear instructions. Besides the 'regular' instructions to refinishing, also tells you how to avoid buying 'fakes', how to spot repairs when buying antiques. Also includes how to repair, almost any kind/type of damage to any kind/type of finish or wood. Good section on history of finishes, furniture styles, wood grains/patterns and characteristics. Funny too. I highly recommend this book over most of the 'current' glossy photo refinishing books you find today. The information does not go out of date, and there is much more background and detail offered here by George Grotz. If you are a DIY-er, this book needs to be on your shelf. 5 stars!
