Antique Restoration Training

The Training resources may contain ideas that differ from the ones that we have found to work but also have some good ideas so again you are on your own. If you find another good site or try one of the ideas presented on the site that work (or don't work) let us know and we will put it out on the links page. 

AntiqueRestorers.Com is a online community of restorers sharing ideas with each other and providing information and advice about the proper restoration and care of antiques, porcelain, furniture, glass, art, pottery, fine art, and fine art frames. (I have found this to be one of the best sites on the web for interesting information)

I found a lot of the information here very good ( Furniture Articles ) but again remember every idea might not work for you so sort out the good. Don't stop here though - search the rest of their site.

The Antique Restoration Discussion Forums is another good site if you take the trouble to read the questions and responses.

If your interest is in Antique Cars the The Guild of Automotive Restorers is a good site and the article A Layman's Guide to Restoration Part 4 was good.

The site Do it Yourself.com often has some good articles an one of them Time to Strip? was worth reading.

The Antique Almanac is another site with lots of information - it is touted as the "Number One reference site for beginning and intermediate collectors" And the other site by Bob Brooke is just as interesting. Pay it a visit for the ultimate enjoyment at BOB BROOKE and look for his Antique Button and other interesting and other pages - especially Business and Technology (oh well you pick what you are interested in - it was all good).

The Garden Web for lots of information that is helpful for a homeowner and for the Antique Furniture lover this part of the site is very interesting.

On the DIY site there are some good general articles on recognizing and caring for antiques. Take a look and go to the related articles at the bottom of the page.  Click Here
