The New Wood Finishing Book, Revised Edition

Format Paperback

Publisher Taunton Press

Category Crafts

Michael Dresdner begins this updated edition of a previous classic in the field with these words: "I know. You hate finishing. You'd really rather be cutting wood. But you want the stuff you make to last, so it needs a finish on it." These are words from a man who knows woodworking and woodworkers. The final finishing of carpentry projects and cabinet making is critical to the good results of any woodworking project, and yet, if done improperly, it can also be the kiss of death for an otherwise well-made piece of furniture, a refinished wood floor, or handmade wooden artwork. Wood finishing is often a confusing and intimidating process, especially for beginners. With this revised classic by one of the noted experts in the field of wood finishing, that needn't be the case anymore. Dredsner offers easy-to-use techniques for professional results, concise answers to the most commonly asked questions, information on spray finishing and new waterborne finishes, and demystifies the art and science of finishing. Chapters cover tools of the trade, stripping techniques, preparing wood, coloring wood, rubbed-on finishing methods, repairing damage to already-finished wood, and much more, along with a resource list for tools and materials, a glossary of finishing terms, and a useful index for quick reference. The original edition of this book was considered the definitive classic: this one's better. --Mark A. Hetts
