Wood Finisher's Handbook
This indispensable guide to the finest finishing techniques is now better than ever, with color photos, more illustrations to show additional stains, and an expanded text. And both newcomers and skilled woodworkers will discover a wealth of enlightening material. The large first section covers all the basics, leading those who have never before applied a finish through the entire process, from wood preparation right to the last coat. Experienced finishers eager to broaden their creative horizons will go straight to the advanced ideas. Many of these traditional techniques-- including French polishing, wood graining, and chemical staining-- have been largely forgotten during the past few years, but their effects are hard to duplicate by any other means.
