Publishers Description
For the beginner inspired to renovate, update, or restore an existing piece of upholstery, this new and practical guide, by prominent author David James ("Upholstery: A Complete Course," "Upholstery: Techniques & Projects") is the essential color-illustrated reference. It contains everything a novice needs to know and covers all the basics: planning the project; buying equipment; selecting good-quality material, such as foams, animal hair, webbings, and twine; choosing the right fabrics and trimmings or making your own; removing old upholstery; and preparing new frames. Ten beautiful, fully-detailed projects, presented in order of difficulty, include a Mahogany Stool with a Drop-in Seat, small Edwardian Country-Style Armchair, 19th-century Walnut Writing Chair, Bed Headboard, Four-Fold Screen, and Balloon-Back Dining Chair.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
May not be what you need  Jul 4, 2007
I thought this book was okay, a good overview. It was well written and thoughtfully laid out. It didn't wow me. This book is geared more for people who want to work on older furniture, mainly chairs. I want to reupholster my couch and love seat. In that respect, this book was minimally helpful and I'm going to have to buy another book to fill in the gaps. Keep that in mind if you want to purchase this book. Also, the author and much of the reference information is UK-based.  Mar 1, 2006
very informative, both books. The home book, was helpful in learning how to recover an armchair, and the auto book was helpful in seeing what I needed to do to mend a door panel with material. Very happy with the results.
I ordered this book because I wanted the "baby steps" version of upholstery. I have several books on this subject, this is the only one that motivates me, knowing--yes I can do it!
Upholstery: A Beginner's Guide  Sep 12, 2005
I have glanced through the book. I am a self-taught upholsterer, with projects all around my home to do. I pretty much copy the existing pattern and method of upholstery as each project was originally put together. There have been challenges along the way with a few upholstered chairs. This book has color and detailed illustrations. I do own two other books by David James. I wish I had owned this book earlier.
Great Book  Mar 30, 2005
This is a really great book -- a sort of shortened version of his "Upholstery: A Complete Course". I think this is by far the best book for people who are interested in learning upholstery. It is superior to Singer's "Upholstery Basics" and makes Sunset's "Simply Upholstery," truly simplistic. They pale in comparison. All of David James' books are great -- very thorough and well written. There is an obvious difference in books that are written by those who love the craft and those that are simply informative. If videos were offered of what David James teaches in his books, it would be like having your very own private upholstery lessons!
