The kink of finishing.starts quick uses chemistry to differentiate finnishes, tests, feel, very hands on and deep knowledge base. The best part is you do not feel overloaded due to his organized teaching by class of finish. Instructs how to and how to fix your errors. Very down to earth.

Recommends it for: aspiring woodworkers
Shelves: nonfiction, how-to
