Upholstery: A Manual of Techniques is designed as a comprehensive how-to-do-it manual for anyone who has a stool, chair or settee to refurbish. Hugh O'Neill has taught upholstery for many years and believes firmly in the basic skills approach presented here. The book starts with information on carcass restoration, including how to buy suitable pieces at auction, and proceeds to give detailed instruction in the skills and techniques of all traditional approaches to upholstery: rushing, caning, stuffed over and sprung.

By focusing on techniques, Upholstery: A Manual Of Techniques is intended to be equally useful, whatever size, style, shape or age of seat you are working on.
