Finishing 101 with Alan Noel

Saturday, August 1, 2020 from 10:00am - 3:00pm
Class Size: 10
Demonstration Seminar

Regardless of how perfect the joinery is or how beautiful the wood species is, the first thing the eye sees on a piece of furniture is the finish. For many woodworkers, the joy of designing and building their own furniture grinds to a halt when the time comes to apply a finish, as they fear their creation will be sullied with a lousy finish job.
Choosing and applying a finish can be a bewildering task, starting with the dizzying array of product choices and ending at times in disappointment once they are applied.
In this class, Alan Noel, a professional furniture refinisher with over 25 years of experience, will be your guide to unraveling the mystery of furniture finishing. Alan will illuminate the criteria for selecting the right finish for a project, so the finish provides the needed level of protection and achieves a look and feel appropriate for the piece.
You'll learn the how's and why's of top coats, what's compatible, what's not, and the pros and cons of spray finishing, versus brushing or wiping. Your color eye will be honed as you learn the nuances of staining and dyeing, how to use coloring agents in combination and the secret to color matching. Alan will share tips for getting your finishes smooth and even as well as tips on how to "go backwards" when an application goes awry. So come ready with pad, pencil and digital camera to soak up the finishing knowledge. You'll learn all the proper sequencing of finishing steps necessary that will enable you to get predictable and reliable results so your finishes accentuate and highlight the beauty of your woodworking projects.

Highland Woodworking reserves the right to cancel any class. Full refunds will be issued in that event. Students withdrawing from a class must notify Highland Woodworking 10 or more days prior to the beginning of the class to receive full credit or refund. No refund or credit will be issued with less than 10 days' notice. For labor intensive or multiple day courses, we reserve the right to issue special refund stipulations which will be noted in the class advertisement at the time of posting.
