Detailed Description

Finishing Wood , Editors of Fine Woodworking

A great finish can make even a simple project look terrific. A bad finish can ruin the most well-built, sophisticated piece of furniture. Finishing can be a daunting and mystifying task to many woodworkers and DIYers who fear wrecking their projects at this late stage in the process. This collection of articles from Fine Woodworking brings together the best information on a rich variety of finishing techniques.

Nowadays, finishing wood doesn't just embrace fine clear finishes like shellac and French polishing, but also bright pigmented lacquers, dyes and stains, milk paint, and "crackled" paint. Finishing Wood features a whole section on the hot new trend of coloring wood. Also included is timeless information on preparing a surface before you apply a finish (a critical first step) as well as tried-and-true methods for applying all the traditional finishes, whether by brush or by spraying.

Chapters are written by such experts as Jeff Jewitt, Peter Gedrys, Terri Masaschi, Mark Schofield, Michael Pekovich, Mario Rodriguez, Vijay Velji, and several others. In Finishing Wood you will learn how to:
  • Sand between coats for a flawless finish
  • Get great results with polyurethane
  • Apply a tabletop finish with a hand-rubbed feel
  • Accentuate carvings with color
  • Spray water-based finishes
  • Restore a worn finish
  • and much more!
