Weirdest Finish Ingredient – 360w360 E.163

tubIn this episode of 360 with 360WoodWorking, the 360 guys talk about the oddest thing either one has added to a finish.

Join the guys twice each week for six lively minutes of discussion on everything from tools to techniques to wood selection (and more). Chuck & Glen, and sometimes a surprise guest, all have their own opinions. Sometimes they agree and sometimes they don’t, but the conversation is always information packed and lots of fun.

  1. One of my customers used to carry a line that had a “dusty wax” finish. My wife always said it looked like insufficient housecleaning. It’s a mix of naphtha, rottenstone, and wax. Wiped on, naphtha flashes off, and then lightly buffed. So it settles in the carvings and details like a giaze wood. It was not bad unless the consumer didn’t like it and wanted it removed, then it was a royal pain, as you’d never get it all off. Particularly since that line of furniture had a lot of carvings and applied moldings.

    1. Keith,

      Had my share of finishes like that too. I remember one piece that, no matter what I put on it, the finish got soft and sticky – like caramel. Strippers, thinners and all kinds of solvent couldn’t liquify the stuff. On behalf of those who are doomed to remove that dusty wax you applied, I thank you…no, really…thank you…
