Take drawers, for example. Stickley and Cambridge Mills construct their drawers using English dovetail joints both front and back. When you see the experts checking the drawers on TV antiques programs, they are usually checking that dovetail joints have been used front and back - with half-blind joints on the front so they are only visible at the side when the drawer opens.
The same hot iron and gluing method is used in repairing marquetry. Lay a piece of paper over the missing section and rub with a soft pencil to get an outline of the area. Cut the paper to the pattern and stick it to the replacement piece of wood. Cut the wood slightly larger than the pattern and rub down with glass-paper until the exact fit can be obtained. Stick it into place with cold wood glue. On many antique furniture pieces the marquetry tends to lift through age and using the warm iron technique will heat the glue and the raised piece can be gently pressed down back into position. If dust has been trapped under the lifted section, it should be removed, cleaned and re-stuck into position.
Oak furniture restoration may involve lavishing your furniture with love at least once or twice a year by anointing it with beeswax polish using a soft cloth and rubbing it deep using a lint-free piece of cloth. Equally, you can use Danish oil to carry the process of pine furniture restoration on thirsty pine furniture.
