Frank T. Destro, Jr. is a successful upholsterer, instructor, and a true craftsman with over 35 years of experience. He is highly regarded by his students, clients, business associates, and peers. Twice he has been featured in Cleveland’s, “The Plain Dealer”, including a Cover Story and a CareerScape article. He was quoted in “Marine Textiles Magazine”, and a guest speaker at the Virginia Marti College of Art & Design, Window Coverings Association of America, and Westlake Ohio Department Of Community Services. He has instructed hundreds of students in his one-of-a-kind, Professional Upholstering classes.

Many students have encouraged Frank to share his unique teaching style with others by writing a book. This led to the creation of this complete, educational, and easy to follow how-to guide for the do-it-yourselfer as well as the skilled craftsman. Frank knows he can show anyone how simple Professional Upholstering can be, if you know ... All the Trade Secrets.

I am very glad I listened to my students, family, and friends. Their overwhelming encouragement and support lead me to write this book.

I enjoyed writing this book and look forward to writing my next. The next book will be more advanced. Some of the techniques I would like to discuss in my next book are; button tufting, channel backs, and sewing different styles of cushions. Yes, again you will receive All the Trade Secrets.

Feel free to visit my website to view samples of my work, ask me questions and please post pictures of all your projects on my Facebook page! They just may be included in my next book!
