A good finish makes a good project exceptional. And to achieve a good finish, you need information about the tools, skills, and materials involved. It can seem complex, but Nick simplifies the process by breaking it down into a series of decisions, explaining what you need to know to make the right choices. The book is full of professional tips on surface preparation, sealing, staining, wiping, brushing, spraying, and rubbing-out. There’s even a plan for a folding finishing booth. Four complete project plans demonstrate common finishes: a Miniature Mule Chest, Step-Back Cupboard, Knife Block and Cutting Board, and a Butler’s Table. 128 pages, over 250 illustrations and photos in PDF format.
