Heywood Wakefield Cabinet
Heywood Wakefield Cabinet
Brett and I found this cabinet sitting outside at an antique store on South Congress Avenue in Austin, Texas. It had several layers of paint on it, the doors were falling off, and it even had wallpaper stuck to it. It looked like someone's trash, but Brett recognized it as a beat up piece of Heywood Wakefield--and a piece small enough to fit in our tiny dining area. He refinished it just in time for my birthday and I filled it with my collection of vintage Pyrex bowls.

Repairing and Restoring Antique Furniture
First published in 1954 as "The Repair and Restoration of Antique Furniture", this work has been revised, expanded and reillustrated by V.J. Taylor, and is aimed at woodworkers, owners of traditionally crafted furniture, and antiques enthusiasts. It explains to the layman the professionals' techniques for repairing damaged furniture and restoring it authentically to prime condition. It describes systematically the six basic steps - dismantling, cleaning joints, restoring components, gluing up, levelling and sandpapering, and colouring and polishing. Included are not only the solutions to typical problems, but also some of the methods which the author devised to overcome more unusual difficulties. A classic work presented in a concise and readable style, this book is aimed at those interested in good working methods, background knowledge, and discovering how much work is done which never shows on the surface.
