It seems like most woodworkers are apprehensive about finishing. Who can blame them? It’s easy to wreck in a few minutes, something that took days or weeks to build. George Vondriska will take the edge off of “finishing fear”. He takes you through the “usual suspects” of stains and top coats, and provides advice on proper sanding of your projects so they’re ready for a great finish.
You’ll learn about pigment stains, shellac, polyurethane, furniture oil, lacquer, and water based polyurethane. You’ll also learn about the positive and negative aspects of each top coat, including when to use them and when to avoid them. What kind of brush is best for each finish, when you shouldn’t use a brush, how to set up lights so you can see defects before the finish goes on, are all topics that are addressed here.
You’ll recognize all the products George uses in this video. There’s nothing exotic. Most of these items are available at home centers where you can purchase woodworking materials.
If you plan on ever applying finish to a project again, you really shouldn’t go without George’s advice.
