In Applying Finishes, America's top finishing expert, Bob Flexner, explains the exact steps to follow to achieve the kind of beautiful finish you want. His direct, no-nonsense style cuts through the hyperbole and half-truths that surround finishing to show you how to choose the perfect finish for superior results on every project; apply stains without blotching - even on hard-to-stain woods like pine and cherry; and use glazes and rubbing compounds to attain a flawless, glowing finish that's free from runs, sags, cracks, or splotches. Also included are four project plans, complete with explicit finishing instructions so you can see precisely how Bob's techniques work.
