Today’s New Article: Fundamentals of Fearless Finishing

highboyFor me, finishing has always begun long before opening a can of stain or dissolving flakes of shellac in alcohol. I’ve always tried to teach students and apprentices a more holistic approach to making furniture.

Although the finish happens at the end, it starts at the very beginning of a project – in the planning stage. And it carries through every step of the project. The best way to end up with a great finish is to envision what you want the piece to look like from the beginning and develop a plan to get you there.

In today’s article, 360 WoodWorking subscribers discover the beginnings of the process I’ve used for decades to produce furniture for myself, my family and friends and customers across the country. If you’re a subscriber, click here to read the article (you need to be logged in to your account).

And, if you’re not a 360 WoodWorking subscriber, what are you waiting for? Subscribing is easy and costs about the same as two cups of coffee each month at your favorite coffee shop. And it lasts a whole lot longer.
