A collection of short works taken from the 360 Woodworking blog on all things Finishing. Inside the pages of this EBook we cover topics such as how to tweak an oil/varnish finish to work in any humidity, how to protect inlay from discoloring if you intend to add dye or stain to your project, tips for brush selection, and the best finish process to highlight figured hardwoods. You’ll discover how to date store-bought shellac so you don’t spread a gooey, non-drying film over your work, and how to maintain a clean rim around any can, be it shellac, paint or another type of topcoat. Plus, there are a couple of articles to warn you about common woodworking mistakes, including one that can ruin your project.
If finishing scares the bejesus out of you, or if you’re simply not comfortable with your level of finishing knowledge, a copy of this book is a must for your library – keep the best information gathered and close at hand.
