How to Select and Apply the Right Finish - Completely Revised and Updated
by Bob Flexner

Understanding Wood Finishing is probably the best-selling book ever published on the craft of wood finishing. Bob Flexner achieves the impressive feat of being both authoritative and encouraging. Above all, the word “understanding” in the title describes the book’s goal: demystifying the process of finishing, giving you insights about materials and techniques, distinguishing between various products and troubleshooting to avoid finishing problems.

The book includes over 300 color photos and 40 reference tables to enhance your understanding of finishing. Revisions in the latest edition include updated information on strippers and solvents no longer considered safe; using soap in finishing; finishing on a tight deadline; how to match colors; working with wood filler; spray finishing; just to name a few.

Softcover. 8 1/2" x 11". 308 pages.
