Detailed Description

Finishing the Finish with Alan Noel

Class Details
Class Description

You've constructed an heirloom quality woodworking project and despite your best efforts, after spraying, wiping or brushing on numerous topcoats you find yourself with a finish that doesn't reflect all of the hours you've invested in the project. Unfortunately, the finish is the first impression one has of your piece, not your hard work picking out the wood, laying out the project and lastly, building the piece.

In this class, Alan Noel will help you remedy your topcoat imperfections by demonstrating the last steps of the finishing process sometimes referred to as finishing the finish. You'll learn how to rub out a cured topcoat to remove imperfections and level the film finish to a smooth, flat finish with an even sheen. Alan will also demonstrate the methods involved in creating the sheen you desire; polishing up a finish to a high gloss or knocking it down to achieve a satin look. Alan will also explain the different types of rubbing compounds and materials used to finish the finish.

If you've ever wanted to get a showroom quality look from a finish you've applied to any of your woodworking projects, this class will take your finishes to the next level.
